This movie will mess with your head; I've never seen anything like it. I went to see the premier of "Doctor Mabuse" (2013) this weekend as a long-time Dark Shadows fan, not knowing quite what to expect and was blown away. I loved its unique style, haunting, noir atmosphere, dreamlike, both menacing and seductive, and how all the elements just meld into a seamless flow, the music, the visuals, the dialog, the characters...particularly with the whole dynamic of the original Dark Shadows actors in the cast, evoking all that ambiance and projecting it into a completely different universe, in distinct roles just as unique and engaging. The mystery of Doctor Mabuse and what he's up to keeps you slightly off-balance, falling forward, like a magic carpet being pulled out from under you as it unfolds before you. A work of art! I'm craving more!
