Simply outstanding in catching the paranoia in the late 1920s and early 1930s in Germany. And great camera, great acting!

Incredible Sci-Fi for that time - MatrixGuy

It's a epic sci-fi movie with dystopian setting. Sci-fi movie released in 1927! In 1927, no I ain't kidding. - LordofL

It's not my favourite either, but I'm surprised it's not in the Top 3.
