M is an incredibly powerful and thrilling film about the search for a serial killer in Berlin, Germany. Fritz Lang employs all the aspects of what makes a city into this film. The murderer commits crimes so abhorrent he has just about everyone in Berlin on his trail, but how does he continue to get away with it? This film was highly influential on the crime film genre and it is not difficult to see why. Thrilling, gripping, and anxiety inducing, M feels like it could have been made at any point in history.

Peter Lorre gives one of the most iconic performances in all of cinema, in one of the very best films in all of cinema. It's a film that, even if its deeply impressive reputation, still astonishes on each rewatch, getting better and better. It's also especially interesting when looking at Fritz Lang's later career as a pioneer of noir, as M is the ultimate proto-noir.
