A truly legendary silent film, DR. MABUSE, THE GAMBLER firmly established the crime thriller as a significant film genre. The plot revolves around the pursuit of arch fiend Dr. Mabuse—a gambler, hypnotist, master of disguises, and all-around criminal mastermind. Mabuse was the prototype for the sort of evil genius super-villains that would later become common in movies and comic books. A tour-de-force crime picture that features characters who slip in and out of disguise, mind control, gambling clubs, exotic women, brutal henchmen, and unexpected plot twists. – KinoLorber
