1927 - Metropolis

For 1927 we’re back in Germany with Fritz Lang’s massive sci-fi drama, Metropolis. Lang’s inventive art deco set design lends itself to a story about the future of industrialization and the effects a modern city has on its inhabitants. We touch on the “feeling” created by German expressionism, robot acting, bad assistants, and good old name confusion. Watch here.
