Sadly this is may be already the first slight disappoint of my Film School. Maybe I went in with too high expectation for a film with such high praise, but I can't help but feel a little let down.
That isn't to say there aren't quite a few really good scene. The actual transfer of the likeness onto the robot was fun. And Brigitte Helm as the robot was quite interesting. Her movements with her eyes and her body did give an unnerving feel.
The Thin Man also really stood out to me. His creepy smile and movements is frightening. But other than that, a lot of the characters were pretty nondescript.
I also really like the scene with all the kids in the staircase. It was very claustrophobic and panicked.
The themes and messages in Metropolis are so basic and corny that I can't believe it was eye opening even at the time.
