To shoot the remake of Fritz Lang's M (The Criterion Collection) may seem as incongruous in itself as to produce the remake of Thelma & Louise or A Clockwork Orange (Two-Disc Special Edition) today but, strangely, I quickly forgot M's glorious predecessor during its viewing. True that a few scenes suffer from the comparison, true that David Wayne doesn't have Peter Lorre's aura but also true that Joseph Losey clearly wanted to show that the 1951 Los Angeles could be compared to the 1931 Berlin, at least in terms of people's behaviour and social decay. I also liked a lot the last scene, completely different from Lang's, with this intoxicated and disenchanting lawyer denouncing his boss in front of a delirious M. Recommended to Film Noir aficionados.

While the movie is excellent, the "made to order" copy from RetroFlix is absolutely horrible, both picture and sound. There isn't even a menu. At $20, this feels like a ripoff. It looks like a bad public domain copy, which is a pity. The movie cries out for a good restoration that highlights the excellent cinematography.

I hate remakes of great films, but this has to be an exception. David Wayne's performance as an 'everyman' is brilliant, and the supporting cast of film noir veterans is great. Relocating the film's setting from Berlin to Los Angeles was, for me anyway, a stroke of genius. It was exactly the way I had remembered the city when I was there in 1961. I have never considered Joseph Losey a great director, but this time he is right on the money.Rather than remake the film as a suspense/drama, he has chosen to make it as a film noir, and in this genre it works perfectly. A tiny lost classic. If you love noir as I do, don't miss this.

For years I was trying to catch this remake on TCM, but they never aired it.
Finally I discovered it in amazon.com and ordered it. The plot is not bad, I enjoyed the film, BUT the quality is very very bad.
It looks like a cheap copy to me, probably recorded from TV at least some 30 years ago.
There are much older movies from the 30's and 40's which have a better quality. I wonder why a movie from the 50's can be in such pathetic shape?

The source material for video transfer was very very poor...
Must have been a 16mm dupe to VHS... then to DVD.
Would not suggest purchasing this low quality item.
