One of the great films made during the early transition from silent to sound, Fritz Lang’s M is a movie that has aged well. On this episode we discuss the 1931 German serial killer thriller with Matthew Speredelozzi, a criminal defense attorney and actor. We discuss the film and it’s technical achievements, but we also focus on the ethical issues of criminal defense, and the importance of finding the right balance between due process and our desire for vengeance in order to protect justice.

Definitely listen all the way to the end, as Matthew discusses some recent trial work where he has helped get an innocent man a new chance at freedom.
