Part II of Lang’s epic thriller traces a web of stories and details Mabuse’s descent. Everyone (his victims, his lover, the state’s attorney who resolutely pursues him) has become, at some point, spectator of his terrifying will. Only at the end, when the system sustaining his authority is breached, will the mastermind become the spectator of his own nightmares.
