48 Down 4 Left (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

F.W. Murnau is one of cinema’s founding fathers, and is responsible for Nosferatu, horror film classic and one of the best vampire films of all time. Nosferatu in Love imagines the key periods of Murnau’s life, from his early years discovering avant-garde theatre, to his stint as a fighter pilot in WWII, as well his film career, spending a lot of time of course, on the making of Nosferatu.

But the real current of the book is Murnau’s doomed love for his teenhood friend and lover Hans Ehrenbaum-Dengle. Author Jim Shepard imagines how Murnau’s inability to escape his feelings of guilt and betrayal inform his entire creative output after Hans’ supposed suicide. Haunted by his inner demons, Murnau spends the rest of his life much like his titular hero, tragic and alone. Apart from being a passionate account of Murnau’s tortured genius, Nosferatu in Love is also an interesting document of early silent-era filmmaking.

Nosferatu is in the public domain, so you download and watch it for yourself. Torrent is available here.

    It helps your body keep in water that you would perspire, turn into
    pee, or burn through your respiratory system.
    Food for thought-should you buy the coconut juice online. Do you know that the coconut flesh contains a high amount of medium
    chain saturated fat, which has less sugar and more protein.

    Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog
    in the near future but I’m having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
