Directed by Fritz Lang
A newly mastered
version of Fritz Lang's great masterpiece, the first classic of the science fiction genre.
His depiction of a giant city controlled by an authoritarian industrialist who lives in a
paradise-like garden while the workers live and struggle in subterranean sections of the
city was as important for its vision of man in the service of those who control technology
as for its implicit and moving social message. "A brilliant piece of expressionist
with moments of almost incredible beauty and power" (Pauline Kael).
Silent with music score. 128 minutes.
