Metropolis ★★★★½


MKE Film Fest #4

('The Complete Metropolis' with live performance by the Alloy Orchestra)

"For her - all seven deadly sins!"

Truly a dream alive on the screen. Continues to be immensely influential - so much so that naming all the examples could result in its very own click-bait list (I'm sure there's already one out in the wild) - and each frame is lush, crisp, and inventive in a way that is astonishing - even more so today. The final 20 minutes, combined with the tremendous Alloy Orchestra score reverberating within the theater, are as climatic as cinema gets, rising towards the heavens, a hero fully reborn.
