The echoes of German Expressionism still resonate in this modern era of filmmaking. Much of the influence of said movement came through the innovations and transgressive thinking that Fritz Lang implemented in his movies. This article set itself to review the filmography of the German director produced between 1917 and 1933, the period of time that marked his production in German territory. Through the analysis of his life and background and themes and techniques employed in his movies, we identified several innovations that influenced filmmakers to come and laid ground for the uprising of movements such as film noir and modern thrillers. The importance of Lang’s work cannot be diminished in a time where science fiction and horror movies are so relevant in modern culture.
