Brief Summary

At a carnival in Germany, Francis and his friend Alan encounter the crazed Dr. Caligari. The men see Caligari showing off his somnambulist, Cesare a hypnotized man who the doctor claims can see into the future. Cesare sees the future. What will happen in the future is death.

The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari includes all the reference points of German Expressionist films. Dark characters, sharp lights and shadows, absurd camera angles, geometric shapes, allegoric story structure and a world that makes you feel insecure.
