32. METROPOL1S (1927-Germany). Directed by FRITZ LANG. The classic of the city of the future, where man has been reduced to a cipher and the machine is all. Far ahead of its time. Don’t miss the spectacular sets (in a style that can only be called “future art-deco”), the mass crowd scenes choreographed with the precision of a ballet, the decimal clock, and other wonders. A film to marvel at after repealed showings. Something new is seen each time, from the class struggle surface plot to the superb climactic flood. Remarkable special effects; don’t miss the anthropomorphic robots. Silent film with music score, correct projection speed. 131 minutes. ÒSilentÓ Science Fiction
