Sure some science fiction movies are huge today such as George Lucas latest goofy Star Wars movie but in Fritz Lang came out with a brilliant film about what the future would be like if people went on living the way they were living back then And sure enough we went right ahead living the way we were living the population got bigger andcrowded and now modern society is not a whole lot different from what was presented in Metropolis The story is about a yo

The screenplay by Thea Von Harbou is still very haunting and courageously assails social issues that are of all ages The world has been divided into two main categories thinkers workers If you belong to the first category you can lead a life of luxury above ground but if youre a worker your life isnt wort

Why does the master of Metropolis deliberately connive to destroy the city that he built? Why is Rotwangs crude little cottage the only pre Fredersen building that wasnt demolished during the construction of this city? Von Harbous very long and unwield

    ePUB History-books.co ë Metropolis MOBI È ë metropolis free, 1927 epub, Metropolis EpubGerman filmmaking during the Weimar Republic never seems to stop being amazing astonishing this time its Lang whose extravagance I had marvelled at when watching his Nibelungen duologyBut this is something else entirely No classic Germanic folk story no this is science fiction distopian fiction and simply incredible filmmakingThe scale the ambition the effects the cinematography the tension the way it feels astonishingly modern in parts it is all very exciting and impressiveIt might be a tad too long especially the final act got a bit ridiculous But perhaps it is a fools errand to expect a Fritz Lang movie to not go all the way It certainly does and we have to thank the man for his ambition and innovationSome fun over the top acting especially enjoyed seeing Rufolf Klein Rogge again after his role in Dr Mabuse
