    Classic noir from Fritz Lang

    German auteur Fritz Lang (Metropolis, M) also created some great films in Hollywood during the golden age, and Ministry of Fear is a sharp fever-dream of a movie that's equal parts espionage, noir, and Kakfaesque paranoia. Criterion's Blu-ray looks and sounds great, and despite the fact that extras are below the usual Criterion standard, the extras provided are enlightening, and the low price makes up for the paucity.

    Ray Milland stars as a man who stumbles into complex intrigue in this excellent wartime Film Noir from master director Fritz Lang. As usual the Criterion treatment is stellar and the "extras" help to contextualize the film and its interesting history.

    Fritz Lang delivers this masterpiece revolving around World War II. Ray Milland is brilliant as Stephen Neale, caught in a world with possible (German party involved in the Holocaust - can't use the "N-word" for some reason!!) connections.

    Fritz Lang directed this early noir thriller and he may have created the template for the genre with this little-known gem.
