Unloved, Part 18: "M"

Eighteen episodes in and Scout Tafoya gets to a film that you're probably thinking you've heard of and was pretty well-loved, "M". The twist is that this is not the beloved Fritz Lang and Peter Lorre version of the disturbing tale from 1931 but the remake from 1951 by Joseph Losey, which is not only unloved but remarkably difficult to see at all. Again, Tafoya offers a convincing case that this his monthly pick is a film that you should try and seek out, even if this month's choice may be a bit more difficult than others. Read/watch more "Unloved" articles here.
