Movie Reviews

Very strange and fascinating cult film
Mr. Steiner | New York | 10/29/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Second part of Fritz Lang's bizarre epic about Indian mysticism shot for television and cut into two features by the studio (the other part being The Tiger of Eschnapur); it's a brilliantly executed pulpy and humorous masterpiece, with breathtaking color cinematography and elaborate set design which rivals the underworld city in Metropolis. Lang really celebrates the artifice of film, and his uncanny sense for mise-en scene proves his mastery of the craft. It's certainly a strange work and perhaps a bit hackneyed, but one should keep an open mind and sink in to the vivid images and spectacular naive tale of power and magic."
Lang's Indian Epic
Scott T. Rivers | Los Angeles, CA USA | 04/05/2002
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The American video release of director Fritz Lang's two-part Indian epic has finally arrived. Admittedly, "The Indian Tomb" (1959) is not among Lang's finest achievements, but it remains a visually stunning, imaginative work - far superior to the slow-paced first installment, "The Tiger of Eschnapur." Except for Debra Paget's exotic beauty, one wishes Lang had assembled a stronger cast for his atmospheric adventure. In addition, the film suffers from some hokey passages involving our ineffectual hero. Still, the film's vivid color photography, architectural compositions and lavish sets are unique in cinema history. Paget's erotic cobra dance, the cave of lepers, and action-filled climax represent Lang at his best. Regardless of its flaws, the director's Indian saga ranks with "Metropolis" (1926) as his most ambitious production. It's a cinematic journey worth taking."
