The films of Fritz Lang: allegories of vision and modernity
A much-needed re-evaluation of one of cinema's major artists by one of film studies' most distinguished and original practitioners. In this remarkable study, Tom Gunning, historian and theorist of early cinema, turns his attention to the work of Fritz Lang, the German emigre director who became a film-making giant on both sides of the Atlantic. Gunning proposes new readings of the entire output of this great director, with particular emphasis on Lang's reflection on modernity.
