9780816676552: Fritz Lang: The Nature of the Beast


The name of Fritz Lang—the visionary director of Metropolis, M, Fury, The Big Heat, and thirty other unforgettable films—is hallowed the world over. But what lurks behind his greatest legends and his genius as a filmmaker? Patrick McGilligan, placed among “the front rank of film biographers” by the Washington Post, spent four years in Europe and America interviewing Lang’s dying contemporaries, researching government and film archives, and investigating the intriguing life story of Fritz Lang. This critically acclaimed biography—lauded as one of the year’s best nonfiction books by Publishers Weekly—reconstructs the compelling, flawed human being behind the monster with the monocle.

Review:

Fritz Lang directed Metropolis, M, Liliom, Fury, The Big Heat, and many other of the cinema's enduring masterpieces. But in Patrick McGilligan's assessment, Lang "lived his life--and cultivated his legend--with the glinted eyes of a maniac." Until his death in 1976, Lang carefully manipulated the events of his past, omitting his first wife's mysterious death, his tyrannical treatment of his associates, and his many liaisons with famous women. In this superbly researched and riveting biography, McGilligan peels Lang's autobiographical fictions to reveal the facts about these omissions as well as his flirtation with Nazism, his alleged Communist affiliations, his sadistic tendencies on the set, and his unparalleled cinematic genius.

From the Publisher:

Praise for Fritz Lang: The Nature of the Beast:

"As definitive a Lang as we are likely to get: entertaining, appalling, persuasive." --Steven Bach, L.A. Weekly Literary Supplement

"A beast Lang certainly was...McGilligan, with ferocious research and a touch of wonder--throughout, he seems to be shaking his head in fascination--spreads [his] elements before us: the quasi-diabolist artist, the sadistic perfectionist with his actors, the fervent devotee of truth, the twister of facts, the elegant immoralist, the indefatigable amorist, the disturbing seer into the giant maladies of his epoch." --Stanley Kauffmann, The New York Times Book Review

"[A] brilliant biography...McGilligan's book will stand as the definitive biography of Fritz Lang for a long time to come. He has given us the man, his films, and the turbulent cultures and times he lived in.... By the end, McGilligan has helped us to understand the nature of the man and despite his faults, which are as epic as his early films, we come to like and admire him."" --Mamoun Hassan, The Times Higher Education Supplement
