Time Out says

Lang's first sound film was based on the real-life manhunt for the Düsseldorf child-murderer (an extraordinary performance by Peter Lorre). A radical, analytical film that entertains many of Lang's fascinations: innovative use of sound; the detail of police procedure; the parallels drawn between organised police behaviour and the underworld... a construction which carries Lang's own view of the arbitrariness of the Law. A subversive film, or more simply a movie brimming over with the ferment of Lang's imagination at its height? You choose.

This is an example what cinema, art, is all about. Is not only the entertainment side of this film, but also that it tells you about the problems in society and the complexity of it.I wonder what the new generation would value it..Thank you!
