An utterly classic movie. It's amazing what they were able to do with all the limitations they had.
Whenever people told me to see Metropolis and raved about what a timeless classic it was, I always figured they were exaggerating. "The movie's nearly a century old, and silent to boot! Surely they exaggerate about its qualities!" I thought to myself.
This clip changed all that.
Well if you do see the one with the '84 music, see it with the sound off and a good ensemble playing live music, like the Alloy Orchestra.
I saw the Alloy Orchestra perform that a couple of times before the original keyboardist killed himself and it more than made up for the fact that about 45 minutes of the surviving footage is cut from that version.

Moloch whose mind is pure machinery! Moloch whose blood is running money! Moloch whose fingers are ten armies! Moloch whose breast is a cannibal dynamo! Moloch whose ear is a smoking tomb!
No wonder Hitler declared it "degenerate".

This website is fucked up.
(seriously, though, the miniature work on the city scenes is fucking tremendous. The little cars move in convincing flows, the planes do their thing, lights go on and off, it's like a model railroader's wet dream.)

5 stars just for jodhpur pants.
Fritz Lang was one of the first directors to address the issues of fault tolerant design and user interoperability.
Wonderful, just wonderful.
Can anybody tell me the best version to own on DVD?
Greatest film of all time. I mean just look at the damn thing!
I can barely look at hugeass majestic mechanical things without comparing it to Moloch.
It makes me sad that I'll never know what it's like to be on a set like that. On sound stage or on location, they just don't shoot scenes like that any more.

The vision of the super city from which all other visions are derived.
