The time has come to rethink wilderness. This will seem a heretical claim to many environmentalists, since the idea of wilderness has for decades been a fundamental tenet—indeed, a passion—of the environmental movement, especially in the United States. For many Americans wilderness stands as the last remaining place where civilization, that all too human disease, has not fully infected the earth.
What ARE these visual forms? The following book on Lang's films will try to offer at least a partial answer to this question.
Lang's use of geometric forms such as circles, spheres, cylinders, rectangles, polygons and spirals will be highlighted. So will Lang's exploration of architecture.
Fritz Lang's films will be placed against their background in prose mystery fiction, spy fiction and science fiction. Lang's approaches to manhunts, scientific detective work, and the ability of police investigation to change the picture of reality will be analyzed.
Fritz Lang's liberal, democratic political ideals will be analyzed, and his support for women's rights and women's jobs. Fritz Lang's deep exploration of mass media and means of communication will be discussed.
Running imagery in Fritz Lang will be traced: Continuing characters and plot ideas in Lang are explored. Early filmmakers who might have influenced Lang are discussed: There are brief pocket discussions of many of Lang's screenwriters.

The Spiders Part I: Like the serial work of Louis Feuilladeit is made up of an irregularly long series of films, each around an hour in length.
Lang only made two of the four films he planned in this series: The Spiders are a mysterious gang, who are up to no good throughout the series. Visually, their costumes are influenced by Feuillade: Plot wise, such gangs remind one of the 's prose fiction of Harry Blythfounder of the Sexton Blake stories.
The Spiders show the same hideouts and meetings as Blyth's conspiracies. Just as in Blyth, they have powerful people on their side: The Spiders leave a calling card behind: It is unclear who was the first to use such a device.
Packard's The Adventures of Jimmie Dale has his gentleman thief leave behind small gray seals to sign his crimes; the thief is known as The Gray Seal to the press. This device clearly spread, as Sampson pointed out, from Packard to other pulp writers.
The opening of the film, showing the noble American adventurer Kay Hoog arriving at his club, reminds one irresistibly of Keaton's Sherlock, Jr.
Hoog enters the film in white tie and tails. His clothes, gestures and body postures while taking off his top coat remind one exactly of Keaton's while he makes his entrance as the Great Detective Sherlock, Jr in that film.
Soon we're shown Hoog's elaborate mansion; Keaton similarly has his fantasy detective in equally rich surroundings, which in Keaton are delightfully overdone, satirically suggesting the absurdity of such movie traditions of wealth. One wonders if Keaton's film is an actual parody of Lang's.
Certainly, the second section of Keaton's Our Hospitalityshowing Time Square way back when, is a conscious spoof of D. Lang draws on several movie traditions, as well.
The second quarter of The Golden Sea is structured as a Western, with his American hero dressed as a cowboy, riding around on horses, and fighting a lot of other cowboys in the pay of The Spiders. This whole section is enormously enjoyable. It shows the rich invention found throughout The Golden Sea.
The treatment of the heroine and the villainess recalls to a degree The Three Musketeers of Alexandre Dumas.
An American Hero Lang will be consistently pro-American in his politics throughout his career. The Spiders will not be Lang's only German film with an American at its center.
