Impressive
14 May 2013 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I wasn't going to post a review for this film until I saw the grossly unfair review posted by the person from Pacific Grove, which was so over the top in it's negativity, I seriously wondered if a personal vendetta against the director was involved.

I went to see Doctor Mabuse because of the three Dark Shadows cast members--I was one of the kids who ran home from school to watch it back in the day. I was blown away by this movie. Produced for peanuts, shot in the director's backyard, (literally) it's an effective recreation of the kinds of thrillers that were produced in Berlin during the 1920s. I'm familiar with those films--I've seen the masterworks produced by Fritz Lang, Paul Leni F.W. Murnau and others--Ansel Faraj is a filmmaker with a vision to match theirs. Doctor Mabuse is bizarre, scary and unforgettable. Jerry Lacy is mesmerizing and terrifying in the title role--a character first presented on screen by Fritz Lang in 1922. Lacy's Dark Shadows co-stars Kathryn Leigh Scott and Lara Parker, offer able support as a creepy pair of sisters who may or may not be working with Mabuse. Handsome newcomer Nathan Wilson makes the perfect leading man: for an actor not as experienced as his co-stars, Wilson shows an impressive depth and intensity in his role as a tormented police inspector. Annie Waterman gives the film a delightfully camp edge with her over the top performance, which she does in a deliciously hilarious, if inexplicable, European accent.

Visually Doctor Mabuse is stunning. It's set in a dreamlike netherworld that could be any time, any place, between 1920-1950. Is it the USA? Is it Europe? That's never made clear, but it sure is spooky! As others have noted, if this masterpiece is what Ansel Faraj can achieve with limited resources it will be REALLY interesting what this young, emerging talent can do with a real budget!
