    Great review. I think the hypnotism theme works so well for the silent cinema – which is all about the look and visual language. The next film does an interesting thing in that, it’s a sound film, yet Mabuse still doesn’t talk, but uses a surrogate voice to hypnotise over a speaker using speech. Like Chaplin’s tramp character, Mabuse only seems in place within the muted world of silent cinema – I think that’s partly why they don’t make them like this anymore!
