‘Metropolis’

Metropolis-1
The Full ‘Metropolis’ @ NYTimes.com

…the search for a copy of the original version of Fritz Lang’s “Metropolis” has become a sort of holy grail. One of the most celebrated movies in cinema history, “Metropolis” had not been viewed at its full length — roughly two and a half hours — since shortly after its premiere in Berlin in 1927, when it was withdrawn from circulation and about an hour of its footage was amputated and presumed destroyed.

If you’re in the NYC area, it’s playing for the next week or so – well worth it. With the restored footage the story makes (more) sense.

  1. In Europe the release of the restored film was on television – and the film is worth it

  2. I can only imagine how packed it was in that little Film Forum theater.
