I saw this on the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari DVD. It was really good. It had a dreamy quality. As if it was otherworldly or something. I was mesmerized. It wasn't spectacular or amazing like Caligari, but I was nonetheless impressed. Also it had a different quality than Calgari. So you can't really compare the two. But if you like silent films, or the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, than I'd recommend this movie. Plus, the imagery was wonderful, it almost felt like the same kind of atmosphere as when you are drifting off to sleep. Though this is not a film for those with a short attention span. Another plus is that this movie was directed by Robert Wiene, an amazing director.
