Reviews of Dr. Mabuse the Gambler (1922) and related work

Dr. Mabuse the Gambler (1922Moving picture, 4.0 hours)

The theatrical performance scene in the second half is the best part. I like Mabuse’s self-destructive behaviour, but the story is neither original nor very good.

The Testament of Dr. Mabuse (1933Moving picture, 122 minutes)

The concept has matured and the curtain scene brings it all together.
