Vampyr by Carl Dreyer

One of cinema’s greatest masters, Dreyer could be described as the metaphysician of film.

Some are befuddled by the plot of Vampyr, an avant-garde horror from 1932, but none can question the power of the images.

The themes are, like some of his notable films such as Ordet, the boundaries between life and death in the context of life after death.

Every film student, photographer, set designer and cinematographer should see this film on a big screen if possible.
