Metropolis

What the f**k was that about, it was so wierd. It was like a scifi, romantic, horror all in one. Much preffered to the cabinet... though. Like you said phil, the scenerey in this film is amazing for its time, its hard to believe that that was the blockbuster of the 1920's and that a high majority of scifi films take concept ideas from this movie. I got lost so many times whilst watching it though, it was quite confusing but when someone tells you the story i then fully understood the film, but where did all the caves come from??? i had so many mor questions during that film but cannot remember them now. None the less another good classic.

The scenery was by far the best part of the movie, it reminded me alot of the Bioshock styled environment, and it didnt help this thought when everywhere started to flood.

  1. Hi Richard,

    The caves were below the machine rooms (below the city) - the old catacombs... hmmm, I wonder what you'll make of Night Of The Hunter on Monday - it's got sound, but we're still in the world of striking black and white... The Bioshock design team owe much to Metropolis - art deco a-gogo! :-)
