Critic Reviews for Destiny (Der müde Tod)
Its key horrors and delights - an owl in the moonlight, a midget presiding over a cockfight, a secret lover buried alive - are all the more searing.
It is bizarre and captivating, an eerie dream of longing and fear.
Even before he was punching out canonical classics, Fritz Lang's genius was supremely evident.
Audience Reviews for Destiny (Der müde Tod)
A beautifully spooky and adventurous movie about death. It is sort of an anthology horror movie with three different stories of love and death told by the grim reaper. I really liked it, it's cool.
a wonderful gothic romance like something from grimm's fairy tales. in his autobiography buñuel wrote that this inspired him to make films. there's an homage to it in un chien andalou. it was one of alfred hitchcock's favorites and a big influence on the thief of baghdad (both versions) and murnau's faust among many, many others
