Boss is a washed up trapeze artist who gets a second lease on life once he abandons his wife and child to go on the road with a younger woman. The adulterous pair are taken in by a renowned and successful acrobat, but his lecherous designs bring out Boss' homicidal jealousy. Variety's frank depictions of lust and violence resulted in it being cut, censored, and edited into an incomprehensible mess for its initial American release. Overlooked for decades, a 2014 restoration of this film shed new light on its daring cinematography, cool stunts, and intense storytelling. As a whole, Variety is an underrated gem of German Expressionism and it's worth tracking down.
