"m"

Has anyone seen the movie "M", with Peter Lorre? It's extremely interesting, about a child murderer (actually he's picky, he only kills little girls) It's pretty old (1933) and is subtitled, because the film is German. Anyway, rent it, or try to catch it on TV (every once in a while it's on Turner Classic). Very good movie, if you have the patience. Peter Lorre is a cinematic genius, I enjoy every one of his performances.

Has anyone else seen it, though?

I saw it a few years ago. Great movie. Very innovative. A film that was ahead of it's time. There was a remake in the 1950's with David Wayne. Not as good as the original , but a decent film.

I watched this on IFC a few months back and I have to agree. Very intriguing film and Peter Lorre was fantastic. I didn't realize there was a remake, I may have to track it down out of curiosity.

Fritz Lang is a great director. I got the chance to see this on the big screen when I was studying film. Awesome film very ahead of its time.

Peter Lorre deserves a pat on the back for his performance.

But seriously, he claimed once that, not long after the film opened, he was chased down the street by a mob of people who had seen the film and recognized him.

He was great in everything he did, I especially liked "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" and "Invisible Agent."

Wow, I'm glad to see there's so many appreciative people out there of classic movie such as this. Also, I agree, and forgot to give credit to Fritz. What an amazing directing job. Peter Lorre is amazing, 20,000 leagues was good, I agree. So was Arsenic and Old Lace (also starring Cary Grant). Anyone seen that one? Kind of a dark comedy for its time. Really fun movie.

I have seen Arsenic and Old Lace many, many times. It is one of my mom's favorite movies. But I like it too. It is a very funny film and I love Cary Grant so no bad there.

I don't care for The Raven all that much....gasp ;) but I love Mad Love. My absolute favorite Peter Lorre role though wasn't in a horror movie at all, but in The Maltese Falcon. I thought he was outstanding in that movie.
