THE COMPLETE FRITZ LANG MABUSE BOX SET - From the early stages of his career across five decades to his final film, Fritz Lang built atrilogy of paranoiac thrillers focused on an entity who began as a criminal mastermind, and progressed into something moreamorphous: fear itself, embodied only by a name - Dr. Mabuse. For the first time on home video, all three of Fritz Lang's Mabuse films havebeen collected for one package, in their complete and restored forms. 1: Dr. Mabuse, der Spieler. [Dr. Mabuse, the Gambler.] (1922) -Lang's two-part, nearly 5-hour silent epic detailing the rise and fall of Dr. Mabuse in Weimar-era Berlin. 2: Das Testament des Dr. Mabuse[The Testament of Dr. Mabuse] (1933) - a tour-de-force thriller rife with supernatural elements, all converging around an attempt by thenow-institutionalised Mabuse (or someone acting under his name... and possibly his will) to organise an "Empire of Crime". 3: Die 1000Augen des Dr. Mabuse [The 1000 Eyes of Dr. Mabuse] (1960) - Fritz Lang's final film, in which hypnosis, clairvoyance, surveillance, andmachine-guns come together for a whiplash climax that answers the question: Who's channelling Mabuse's methods in the Cold War era?The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Fritz Lang's complete Mabuse trilogy - a cornerstone in the work of one of cinema's all-timegreatest directors.
