    It is nice to see someone else admires German Expressionist Films and has similar tastes in films as myself. the only film’s I have not seen on your list are Full Monty and Pan’s Labyrinth. If you haven’t seen them yet, I would recommend the Japanese animated film Metropolis (2001) based on Fritz Lang’s masterpiece, F. W. Murnau’s Nosferatu (1922) and Sunrise (1927) and Paul Leni’s The Man Who Laughs (1928).

    • I’ve seen all of those! Love them 🙂 I wrote my university dissertation on German Expressionist film. I’m just about to post another of my old uni essays and will post my G.E. one very soon too! So watch this space! 🙂

        That is so uncanny. I wrote my university dissertation on Expressionist film as well!

      • Oh wow! What did you focus on? I wrote about the influence of fairy tales on German Expressionism, starting briefly with art and stories, and then films, and how the legacy of German Expressionist film influenced contemporary film 🙂

        I talked about how the films were a reflection of Germany’s overall state of mind. I focused on Calighari, Nosferatu, Waxworks and Meteopolis as well as the Reindarht theater.

  4. I saw Pan on the sidebar on Emma’s site (Pan’s Labyrinth is my favourite movie!) and then when I hovered over it, my favourite quote popped up!! “Everything I learned, I learned from the movies.” I feel like we have a lot in common, so happy I found your site!
