JANUARY-MARCH TERM, WEEK 10: The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari
So, the end of another term, and for myself, one of the most rewarding. Not that previous terms have not been rewarding, but this term saw some real home runs being scored.
Well done everyone.
To cap the end of term, I thought it would be good to watch , Robert Wiene's, The Cabinet Of Dr. Caligari. It's only 50 minutes long which meant we also had plenty of time for drawing.

This movie , along with, F.W. Murnau's Nosferatu (1922) and Fritz Lang's, 1927 science fiction epic, Metropolis, left a lasting impression on me.
all examples of German Expressionist cinema and provide a wealth of inspiration for graphic fantasy.
