Summary
Dr. Mabuse, the mastermind of crime, uses hypnosis to subvert his opponents and control his victims. His thirst for power and wealth reflect the decadence of post World War I German society. Filmmaker Lang's high-contrast expressionist graphics, overly-bright streetlights and bit-characters with significant mannerisms provide social commentary that raise this film above the limitations of the genre
