    In collaboration with the screenwriter Hans Kyser, F. W. Murnau fused Faust’s script from German folk legend and the works of Goethe, Gounod, and Marlowe to tell the classic tale of a man who sells his soul to the devil. Starring Emil Jannings as Mephisto, this was Murnau’s last German film feature, and it features astonishing photography, magnificent art direction, and special effects which still have the power to amaze. Freed from the constraints of psychological narrative, his mastery of cinematic technique places Faust at the pinnacle of the silent era, its barrage of visceral and apocryphal imagery contrasting with the simplicity and directness of its spiritual theme. This DVD features a extra audio commentary with film critic John Noonan.
