One of the most influential and popular silent films, Caligari is also spectacularly weird entertainment. From the expressionist sets to the powerful acting to the slippery plot, this film is a unique experience from beginning to end. Often imitated, always references but never equaled.
If it were a dessert it would be:
Black Lagoon Cocktails. Dark, mysterious and more than a little disturbing. May mess with your head.
