RARA-AVIS: Fritz Lang on violence

From: Juri Nummelin ( juri.nummelin@pp.inet.fi)

Fritz Lang once said in an interview that there is no violence in
"M" (1932), in which Peter Lorre murders small children with his knife. Audience imagines it all. Lang shows nothing, yet he makes it happen in the front of an audience.

That's my two-bits on violence.

(Yet I've been rewriting my supposedly first novel (fingers crossed) and it's filled with on-stage violence and I'm aiming to put more into it. I don't do what I teach.)
