The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (Robert Wiene, 1920)

 

The Large Operation, from Faces (Max Beckmann, c. 1914)

 

Corpulent bodies mulling around, searching for something hidden in shade.

Lurking beneath sullen foreground the song of the soul still remains.

Evading the truth, persuading the youth, fear perpetually nags.

Lost and alone, ebony tone.

We dance abated, afraid.
