Expressionist Films’ Party

Faust
Now you can make your own German Expressionist Film party with the videos in public domain available at Archive, thanks to K-otic (be careful with the shoutbox pop-up). The last addition was Faust, the F. W. Murnau‘s masterpiece based on the popular German tale, immortalized by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. If you never watched it do it now! Download it from the Internet Archive or watch it on Google Video. it’s wonderful, believe me.
For those that prefer read the book first (or after) watch the film, buy the book, or just go to the Project Gutenberg to download, or read on-line, the translation of Faust, or if your German is good enough, not like mine, try the original Faust: Der Tragödie erster Teil.
And what else? As I said before, other Murnau’s classic available at Archive is Nosferatu, which is also available as torrent. More classics there: The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and Fritz Lang’s M. They are also available at Google Video, as other German expressionist films: Caligari, Destiny, M and Nosferatu.
Caligari
Related posts: Caligari on Internet Archive, Nosferatu: watch it!, Web of Murnau, The Golem (Der Golem) and Fritz Lang’s M.
Many of the videos are no longer available, they were deleted from Internet Archive and Google Video.

    The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and Nosferatu are two of my favorite films of all time! haven’t watched them in a while, though

    One of my favorite eras in film that is overlooked by the modern so-called historians. Caligari is an amazing piece of work and the story within a story within a story framework is more stunning than just about anything M. Night Shamalamadingdong has ever come up with. Also, Tim Burton stole half his career from Caligari. The Somnabulist was obviously the inspiration for Edward Scissorhands, the Dr. himself is a dead ringer for the Penguin in Batman Returns, and lots of other stuff.

    Caligari is one of my favourites and I like a lot of Nosferatu. I watch part of them from time to time, just to keep the image fresh on my mind.
