Thanks for the review. I've been on a Lang kick lately, rewatching the Testament of Dr. Mabuse last week (a real classic of German Expressionism), and also seeing Hangmen Also Die! for the first time this past Monday. The latter film is in the same boat as Ministry; a work not quite strong enough to be thought of as a bonafide classic, but one that has enough visual splendor and directorial bravura that it is still essential viewing for fans of the filmmaker.

I have Spione on order from the library for next week, and I'm pumped to finally see what is considered one of his silent classics for the first time.

Might just wait and see if a UK/European version with subtitles comes up. But if not will definately buy this.

I blind bought this at B&N, I still haven't watched it. I want to, but I always seem to have TV shows or Redox rentals someone wants to watch first.
