  1. My thoughts on the opening of M probably reflect what others have said over the course of the day. I do find it uniquely interesting that the film begins with the children's point of view of the crime. Rather than throw us into a world of gangsters or police, we are put in a world where the victims - who are the most vulnerable people as children - don't see their own danger as dangerous. 

    It also gets to the heart of noir, at least in my view, where the filmmaker looks at the lower classes and the darker corners of the world. Lang isn't going to take the viewer to upper-class society and even Hans Beckert's victims are of the lower class. He doesn't go after rich children for money.

  2. Hi everyone! Yes, I've just joined the message boards here and I hope to have an opportunity to post elsewhere. 


    I met a lot of great people at the TCM Festival and I really hope I get to go next year. It is a little late to share coverage on it, but better late than never. 


    I covered the festival for TheCelebrityCafe.com, where I've been writing for three years already and I have a column there I've been doing ever since I joined on classic films once a week called "Film Friday." 


    Here's the general link to all the coverage I did. I also wrote a full review of The Stranger's Return, which just blew me out of the water. 


    Anyway, I hope it's not frowned upon here to share your stuff and I will try to be active here. TCM is a real gift for us, but I'm sure everyone here knows that already.  :)
