THE TELLTALE HEART

by Charles KLEIN
1928 / 35mm / b&w / sound / 1S / 24' 52




“This avant-garde film version of Edgar Allan Poe’s story adapts the expressionistic mise-en-scène of Caligari to figure the distorted subjectivity of the insane protagonist. Additional manipulations of the filmic material and two remarkable montage sequences dramatize moments of extreme pathology and delusion, especially around issues of vision and sound.” —David James
