Directed by: Fritz Lang

Set during Blitz-torn wartime England, Ray Milland (Dial M for MurderThe Lost Weekend) stars as a man just released from a sanatorium who stumbles into an elaborate and murderous Nazi plot. Reminiscent of Lang's early expressionist films (The SpidersDr Mabuse the GamblerM) and full of bravura set pieces and hallucinatory visuals, Ministry of Fear is one of Lang’s finest films – a mature and beautifully crafted thriller, and a vivid adaptation of Graham Greene’s celebrated novel.
