THE DEFINITIVE RECONSTRUCTION
(1926, Fritz Lang) In the city of the future, while the rich live well above, the workers below are a bad #2 to the machines; but industrialist scion Gustaf Froelich tries to bridge the gap -- only trouble, which Brigitte Helm is his girl, and which is a robot? Approx. 153 min. DCP.
"A MASTERPIECE OF VISIONARY SILENT CINEMA...one of the strangest, most fascinating films ever made, a futuristic nightmare that is both sublime in its grandeur and remarkably intimate in its emotions."
– A.O. Scott, The New York Times
"Easily trouncing the recent Hollywood heat rash of over-extended superheroes and Hasbro infomercials, this satisfying sci-fi blockbuster is a crypto-Marxist, proto-Fascist spectacle first released 80 years ago! Metropolis now seems both quaintly steampunk and disjunctively contemporary."
– Ed Halter, Village Voice
– Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
