(OK) 4 1/2 hours of intrigue and a picture of deep amorality. Elocuent dialogues in a silent film: the countess explains Mabuse her unbeareble ennui and he says that his only amusement is gambling with other fate. The prosecutor, his enemy, is a sort of gambler, too. The little casino disguised as a show is wonderful.

A classic

Since this movie has a really solid reputation (it is included in the ‘1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die’ list among other things), I was really eager to check it out. Well, eventually, I believe it’s the craziest and wildest movie I have seen so far directed by Fritz Lang. That’s really the cool thing about movies which were made back then.

View all Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler reviews
This legendary silent thriller introduced the world to the archfiend Dr. Mabuse (Rudolf Klein-Rogge), a gambler, hypnotist, master of disguises, and all-around supervillain, whom director Fritz Lang would revisit throughout his career. Revolving around Mabuse’s nefarious attempts to use mesmerism to swindle wealthy businessmen, this influential crime drama blends the pulp trappings of its genre—characters who slip in and out of disguise, mind control, gambling clubs, exotic women, brutal henchmen, and unexpected plot twists—with Lang’s incisive commentary on the decadence of 1920s Germany.

"5.8. Massiivipitkässä mykässä superpaha megaroisto hypnotisoi uhrinsa, mutta meno ei ole Etelä-Koreaa, vaan oikeastaan kaikki toimii lähes täydellisesti. Lavasteet ovat upeita ja näyttely sopivan ilmeitä korostavaa. Myös leikkausratkaisut ovat reippaasti aikaansa edellä. Masters of Cineman levyltä löytyvä soundtrack vieläpä tukee visuaalisia ratkaisuja erinomaisesti. Mitään suuria oivalluksia elämästä ei nähdä, mutta ensimmäinen Mabuse tarjoilee äärimmäisen viihdyttä"
