Marc's Review of Metropolis

19 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes


A mad-genius masterpiece of imposing, aggressive imagination. Lang's astounding, epic vision of an industrialized society descending into anarchy is as furious and as immediate today as it was when it was first released. Its vision of a dystopian future, technology, and the divide between the rich and poor is such that it spawned a legion of imitators and successors, none of which measure up to this singular beast of silent cinema.
