Anyone interested in film noir will find a lot to treasure in Asphalt, which anticipates many of the genre’s familiar tropes. Set in the Berlin underworld, this sensual drama epitomizes German Expressionist filmmaking in the silent era: a dazzling visual style, a psychological approach to its characters, and simple, powerful storytelling. A straight-laced cop apprehends a beguilingly beautiful thief in the act of stealing a diamond…then fails to turn her in—and that’s just the beginning! Introduction by Prof. Gerd Gemunden. D: Joe May, Germany, 1929, 90m
