FANTOMAS by Louis Feuillade

Finally got to see the first great movie series/serial...
...binging on the five films that comprise the 1913-14 Fantomas series...and I'm absolutely blown away!
Yes, they're almost a century old b/w silent films, but these are wonderfully-pulpish over-the-top mystery-action flicks that beat the pants off most of the over-CGIed crap that passes for cinema today!
If you've never read the books (and I haven't), there are some wild twists and turns, and a series finale that places the evil protagonist, Fantomas on a level with Doctor Doom or The Joker as THE villain who can never be caught/killed!
