    An Early German Film Classic/Epic

    In 1924 Fritz Lang made two movies "Siegfried" & "Kriemhild's Revenge" that together constitute this 5 hour German Expressionist epic. In bold light and shadow, with unforgettable characters and faces, and hyperdramatic action and emotion, he brings to life an ancient Teutonic legend.

    If you think 5 hours is too long, take it in sections. The slaying of the dragon in the first section is astounding considering the year and still effective eighty five years later.

    Quite simply put, this is one of the most important formative works in German and world cinema while still being an exciting, moving film.
