"his greatest achievement"

Lang regarded "M," which opened in 1931, just two years before he fled Nazi Germany for a long if less storied Hollywood career, as his greatest achievement. Judging by its regular placement on all-time-best lists, many critics concur.

"M," which systematically tracks the separate quests of the police and the underworld to catch a child killer who's terrorizing Weimar-era Berlin, was among the first titles released in the late '90s by the Criterion Collection, which issued an upgraded version with a digitally restored transfer in a fine two-disc set in 2004; this week Critierion is making the film available on high-definition Blu-ray.
