The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari
Often cited as the first true horror movie and one of the first films to tell its story through the eyes of a delirious madman, the techniques of this film milestone are rarely imitated. Eschewing naturalism, the movie's sets are all painted in hallucinatory black-and-white designs and the acting, as well, follows Expressionistic techniques popular in Germany at the time.
"...tell its story through the eyes of a delirious madman. Curiously, though it is considered a milestone in film..."
