My man

LACMA

5905 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036

7:30pm

931, 117 minutes, black and white, DCP | Directed by Fritz Lang; Peter Lorre made a memorable impression with his breakthrough performance in Fritz Lang’s underworld thriller. Lorre plays Hans Beckert, a tormented child murderer who finds himself pursued not only by the police but by his colleagues in the Berlin underworld. Lorre’s disturbing yet pitiable performance was the perfect linchpin for Lang’s moody pre-noir thriller, and once you’ve seen M, you’ll never be able to listen to Grieg’s “In the Hall of the Mountain King” the same way again.
