Fifth about The Seventh

M (1931)

M: wonderfully visual masterpiece (a label that is overused, hence generally undeserved). Not much about this movie suggests that it’s been around for 80 years. The story and the way it’s told feel very contemporary, the acting doesn’t have the usual earmarkings of old movies. But it truly is the power of images, put together by an uncanny editing, that makes this what it is.
