Over the last few months, the Museum has screened masterpieces of German Expressionism, such as Metropolis (in September), M (screens every Monday and Friday in our galleries) and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (every Tuesday and Saturday in the galleries). We also hosted Eddie Muller in October to explain how Expressionist cinema gave birth to the Film Noir genre. In November, we’re letting the films do the talking, with a double feature that illustrates how German Expressionist cinema has continued to influence filmmakers. F. W. Murnau’s classic, Nosferatu, helped set the standard for Expressionist filmmaking in terms of aesthetics and dark subject matter. Seven decades later, director Woody Allen would make a direct and conscious homage to German Expressionist directors F.W. Murnau, Fritz Lang, and G. W. Pabst with Shadows and Fog. Allen shot this work on the largest set ever constructed in New York to create the same look and surreal feeling of a German Expressionist setting.
