Movie Review

Fritz Langs Ministry Of Fear, is full of suspense and mystery that entertains and puzzles the viewer.

To be honest, I watched this movie because I really liked the poster to the left. However, I was pleasantly surprised at the end of the film. While the narrative is interesting, its the captivating suspense that what really makes the movie. However, I did enjoy the unique characters and their contribution to the mystery. Regarding the suspense, there is almost always a sense of fear in every scene but not in an overwhelming way. Combined with the mystery at hand, it creates a unique noir that left me satisfied. Lang does a good job with pacing to not make the film too extravagant. His use of lighting also stood out to me as it really emphasizes key moments.

In the end, for what it is, Lang delivers and left me content, earning a 3/5 stars.
