The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (German: Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari) is a wonderful 1920 German silent horror film, directed by the legendary Robert Wiene and written by horror authors Hans Janowitz and Carl Mayer. Considered the quintessential work of German Expressionist cinema, it tells the story of a very insane hypnotist (Werner Krauss) who uses a somnambulist (Conrad Veidt) to commit atrocious murders. The film features a completely dark and twisted visual style, with sharp-pointed forms, oblique and curving lines, structures and landscapes that lean and twist in unusual angles. Later complimented with shadows and streaks of light painted directly onto the sets. This film looks like AI created it, yet it is decades before the technology.
