The Lost Film Society – ‘Faust’,
F.W Murnau / Date: 1926 / Dur: 117 mins
In this German film, Emil Jannings glowers his way through the role of Mephistopholes, who offers the aging Faust an opportunity to relive his youth, the price being Faust’s soul. Though highly stylized, the film is unsettlingly realistic at times, especially during the execution of the unfortunate Gretchen. Dir.
