Summary
"Fritz Lang's 1927 masterpiece Metropolis is perhaps the most famous and influential of all silent films. Now that the original director's cut has been found, the film can be seen as the director intended. Metropolis is the crowning achievement of German Expressionist cinema. This is Lang's vision of a dystopian future - where the rich live in splendid luxury, while a literal underclass toil in a vast subterranean workshop"--Container
