Noirish Posted by John Grant on Dec 5, 2018

If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you’ve seen the German Expressionist classic The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. As soon as Robert Weine’s 1920 film came out, read more

So you want to watch Metropolis (1927)?

Pretty Clever Films Posted by Brandy Dean on Dec 9, 2013

On the one hand, Fritz Lang’s Metropolis is a cinematic masterpiece, loved and admired the world over, frequently revived at festivals and rep theaters, and represents the initial silent cinema encounter for many. On the other hand, Metropolis is a cipher, partially lost yet continuing to lum read more

Gotham City and The Metropolis Of Tomorrow

We Recycle Movies Posted by Anne Marie on Aug 31, 2013

Batman is back in the news, and today I am giving a lecture on Gotham. I love when I’m accidentally topical. If you’re unable to join us in Long Beach for the Queen Mary Art Deco Festival, here is an excerpt from my lecture, Streamline Superman and the Deco Dark Knight: Art Deco & Superheroes. read more

Brigitte Helm In METROPOLIS

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day Jr. on Feb 2, 2013

This time of the year is usually referred to as "awards season", when all the beautiful people get together at various functions and congratulate each other on how talented they are. I think it's ironic that people get so worked up about award shows, because some of the greatest film read more

On the Set of Fritz Lang’s Metropolis (1927) (1)

Pretty Clever Films Posted by Pretty Clever Film Gal on Oct 30, 2012

Production of Fritz Lang’s Metropolis began on May 22, 1925 and ran until October 30, 1926. That’s a long, grueling shoot by any measure, but Metropolis included some elaborate sets, a lot of complicated effects, and one very particular director. Shooting was particularly tough for Brig read more

In Defense of Giorgio Moroder’s Metropolis

Hollywood Revue Posted by Angela on Oct 31, 2011

By the time I was first interested in seeing Metropolis, I was lucky that the first print I got to see was the 2002 restoration. I’d heard that before the 2002 restoration, there were some pretty shoddy prints available, but I never actually sought one out to see for myself. But a few month read more

Rock Opera Metropolis Set to Hit 20 Cities

Pretty Clever Films Posted by Pretty Clever Film Gal on Aug 30, 2011

Hmm… I tend to get pretty persnickety about overtly modern soundtracks for silent movies. However, there’s no reason not to see Metropolis 1 billion times, so bring it! Girogio Moroder’s 1984 rock opera soundtrack isn’t my favorite Metropolis score, but it’s not the w read more

Metropolis at the DFT

Hollywood Revue Posted by Angela on Jun 20, 2010

I promise, this will be the last I write about the new Metropolis restoration for a while! The restored version of Metropolis has been making the rounds, playing in various cities in the U.S. since April and will continue through the U.S. and parts of Canada until October.  I was able to catch it to read more

Metropolis Rediscovered

Hollywood Revue Posted by Angela on Mar 13, 2010

In a previous post, I talked about how excited I was for the big Metropolis restoration complete with lots of previously lost footage. Kino International is planning a DVD/Blu-Ray release of the newly restored version for December 2010, so I just figured I’d have to wait until then to see it read more

Unseen Metropolis Footage

Hollywood Revue Posted by Angela on Feb 14, 2010

I never have been like most people my age.  When I was in middle/high school, everyone wanted to watch that televised celebration of mediocrity called Friends.  I was busy watching re-runs of Twin Peaks.  When I was in college, I stayed in and watched Antiques Roadshow on Saturday nights while almo read more
