★★★★★ The flagship work of the BFI's Gothic: The Dark Heart of Film season, F.W. Murnau's 1922 classic Nosferatu is restored and rereleased this week thanks to Eureka's Masters of Cinema label. One of silent cinema's most celebrated offerings, A Symphony of Horror remains an eerily expressionist nightmare of cultural anxiety in post-First World War Germany. A loose adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula, Nosferatu begins with estate agent Knock (Alexander Granach) dispatching his associate Hutter (Gustav von Wangenheim) on an assignment to "the land of thieves and spectres".
