Fun Size Review: Warning Shadows (1923)

A flirty wife. A jealous husband. A band of lusty pals. A sinister puppeteer. What could possibly go wrong? And remember, this is a German film so the answer is pretty much everything. Murder most Teutonic.

We’re in for some dark and stylish doings, needless to say, and Fritz Rasp spends much of the second half rasping about, as he is wont to do. While not quite a masterpiece, this is still a very worthy film and the clever production design makes it particularly of interest to art geeks.

How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.

It was all a dream. Or was it?

If it were a dessert it would be: Snow Globe Cupcakes. Maybe more for looks than taste but what looks!

Availability: Released on DVD by Kino with a very moody score by Donald Sosin. The disc is currently out of print, so keep your eyes peeled for bargains.
