Plot: With its bizarre angles and aura of insanity, this is the ultimate German Expressionist movie — a psychological thriller with stylized sets, distorting mirrors and a cruel chiaroscuro. Dr. Caligari (Werner Krauss), a pretentious fairground huckster, arrives in a new town along with the mysterious Cesare (Conrad Veidt), a somnabulist who, in his trancelike state, carries out unspeakable crimes at the diabolical doctor’s command.

Andrew Botsford is a visiting professor and communications consultant working with the Stony Brook Southampton Killer Films MFA in Film program and program director Magdalene Brandeis. A writer, editor, actor and director, for 20 years he was the associate editor of The Southampton Press family of newspapers and the editor of the papers’ Arts & Living sections.
