The movie looms over our cinema like a hand of consequence, haunting us with its austerity and power long after others have faded from the mind.

Few films are gripping and effective 82 years after their original release, but this one surely is.

Lang's film is a must-see for even a moderately ambitious film buff.

This is a movie that dares to sympathize with a sick person, that risks making the monster real and us (in an era when Germany's cinema was still shellacked in canted angles and fanciful shadows).

Slant Magazine

Fritz Lang's acute use of objects, symbols, letters, and codes to decrypt a relatively simple narrative remains as perfect an example of pure cinema in the sound era as one is likely to find.

...a touchstone, one of those classics that infects the popular imagination to the point that it's really not necessary for most people to have actually seen it to recognize its signal moments ...

Observer [UK]

Fritz Lang entered the sound era with a bold expressionist thriller that captured the ugly mood of the years before the Third Reich.

Put simply, without M to show the way, there might have been no subsequent films in which a hidden killer unmasks the ills of the society around him

Fascinating early talkie that made Peter Lorre a star as child murderer hunted by all.

Peter Lorre's finest performance, and a truly significant socially-themed film.

The moral issues are complex and deftly handled: Lorre is at once entirely innocent and absolutely evil. Lang's detached, modified expressionist style gives the action a plastic beauty.

An extraordinary, good, impressive and strong talker. Again fine work by Fritz Lang, and his wife and helper, Thea von Harbou.

Remarkable early look at scientific and police detection - and of a city in fear

A subversive film, or more simply a movie brimming over with the ferment of Lang's imagination at its height? You choose.

Even after 75 years, Fritz Lang's first German talkie works beautifully as a carefully constructed thriller and police procedural.

It's creepy and masterful with many indelible scenes and a knockout performance by Peter Lorre.
