Nosferatu, The Vampire
Genre:Art/Foreign
Rating:?
Country:Germany
Cast:Klaus Kinski, Bruno Ganz, Isabelle Adjani
Credits:DIRECTED BY WERNER HERZOG

Herzog's homage to Murnau's 1922 classic version of the Dracula tale. Herzog is not interested in a mere remake of a film he loves: he calls it instead a "rebirth", bringing his own eerie sense of decay, longing, and mysticism to the Nosferatu story. Awash in Wagner, its imagery derived from Symbolist paintings, shot through with Teutonic terror and dread. Herzog's Nosferatu is "a film of astonishing beauty and daring...A tribute to the purity of vision of the silent cinema and also a lament for the loss of innocence" (Kevin Thomas).
