Online Streaming: Mephisto
The 1981 Academy Award-winning (Best Foreign Language Film) Mephisto concerns a passionate, but struggling actor (Klaus Maria Brandauer) who remains in Germany during the Nazi regime and reaps the rewards of this Faustian pact by finally achieving the stardom he has long craved.
"Few have dared what Brandauer accomplishes: showing us a good actor responding to the same neurotic drive for the center of the stage, the immortalizing role. His is a great performance, nothing less." - Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine
"Mephisto is brilliant metaphorical filmmaking." - Bruce McCabe, Boston Globe
"One of the greatest movie performances I've ever seen. A performance of electrifying power." - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
