Critic Reviews for Giorgio Moroder's Metropolis

All Critics (1)

With Moroder's color tints, snappier pace, and sometimes silly music, the movie is often a great deal more fun, and certainly something more along the lines of a cult classic than a masterpiece of world cinema.

Audience Reviews for Giorgio Moroder's Metropolis


So this exists. Take one of the early edits of Fritz Lang's Metropolis and dip it in some 80's acid.

Fritz Lang's classic film Metropolis was given a restoration, some color tinting, and a new soundtrack in 1984. Its architect, disco producer Giorgio Moroder, infused the narrative with a thumping electronic soundscape that used pop songs from Pat Benatar, Freddie Mercury, Loverboy, and other stars of that era. As you can imagine, some of Moroder's sonic choices have aged with much less grace than the movie he was attempting to modernize. Still, his efforts helped to preserve a cinematic classic, a lot of the other pieces of music are rather prescient when contrasted against the EDM hits of 2013, and his slick cut of Metropolis makes it quite accessible to a silent film neophyte.

It's certainly interesting, but Moroder's Metropolis is more notable as eye candy than a fresh take on the classic.
