Nosferatu

Rated NR 65 minutes 1922

A masterpiece of the German silent cinema and easily the most effective version of Dracula on record. F.W. Murnau's 1922 film follows the Bram Stoker novel fairly closely, though he neglected to purchase the screen rights—hence, the title change. But the key elements are all Murnau's own: the eerie intrusions of expressionist style on natural settings, the strong sexual subtext, and the daring use of fast-motion and negative photography.

Presented by the Silent Film Society of Chicago; Jay Warren provides live organ accompaniment. Mon 10/16, 7:30 PM.
