Movie Clip Wednesdays: Best Black and White Film

Fritz Lang's Metropolis.

This was made in 1927 and to me it still stands as one of the most beautifully and powerfully made Sci-Fi films ever. Set in a dystopian future in which a class of have-nots live underground toiling away so that the haves may live their lavish lives above ground, its influence can be seen in everything from Apple's original Macintosh commercial to Madonna's "Express Yourself" music video to the Matrix. It's now fully restored with previously lost footage and looks better than ever.

WOW!!! If there was an award for "best clip" that would have won going away.

Big Shamu said...

You know a few years ago I set out to buy the dvd of this but was confuzzled by the many versions out there. Has there been one released recently that I can purchase?

Boxer said...

most excellent choice. A classic. True talent in movie making at a time when it wasn't about special effects, trick editing software. Shamy, I'll check with Mr. Boxer and see what's out there.

moi said...

Milk River: It's sort of breathtaking, isn't it?

Shamu: DVD and Blue Ray of fully restored version hits the stores November 16th: http://www.kino.com/metropolis/main.html

Boxer: It's amazing what Fritz Lang was able to achieve special effects-wise long before CGI.

Pam said...

Wow, never ever seen this. It is all very Art Deco and Pink Floyd and Futuristic and Titanic at the same time. With a touch of Upstairs/Downstairs thrown in! Will put this on the list for one day.

Karl said...

Good evening Moi,

Wow, what a neat clip. Kind of Orwellian in a 20's sort of way.

Happy clip day!

K9 said...

Man this makes me want to watch it like right now. I saw it in school but have forgotten a lot of it. This was fun, and i enjoyed your look at it's influence in popular cinema. you cant get any more modern politically than this. The opening scene is gorgeous like a painting and reminded me a lot of Blade Runner. Great choice!

Im participating this week Here

moi said...

Pam: German Expressionist painting was at its height at this time and that was a big influence, too.

Karl: Orwell probably had this in the VCR :o)

K9: Blade Runner, yes! I hadn't thought of that one.

Buzz Kill said...

I'm another Metropolis virgin but have seen bits and pieces over the years. I read where in today's dollars, this film would cost $200M. That's pretty expensive even today.

Happy MCW!

czar said...

First time I saw this was in about '86, with a restored version that came out back then, maybe even with some modern music added to it. I forget. What I do remember (sorta) is that it was merely the lead-in to the midnight showing of the Atlanta premiere of Repo Man, another classic, but for totally different reasons.

"Nice friends you got there, Otto."

"Thanks. I made 'em myself."

Cracks me up every time.

moi said...

Buzz: At the time, it was the most expensive film ever produced: 5 million Reichmarks, although I have no idea what that translated to in U.S. dollars. I wonder who owns the rights now?

Czar: I LOVED Repo Man! I went through this phase my first year of college where I spent nearly every night at one or the other of our university-area art house movie theaters, Don Panchos and The Guild. Don Panchos is gone now, but The Guild still manages to hump it out. At any rate, I caught some great flicks there.

Aunty Belle said...

ohmigoodness!

Ain't never seen none of this an WILL REMEDY THAT ASAP! wow--first look, it do make ya wanna high tail it out of the city to a hidey hole in the woods.

All in all, the literature --and add in this movie, an K9's modern version of same with Blade Runner--is the intuitive wretch in the gut at the idea of the over-industrialization of man. Oh boy--could write on this fer days.

Only horro missin' in that clip is the GMO foods we now has to stomach. Heh.

Happy MCW, Moi!

K9 said...

aunty i hope you do post on that.

listen people, dont be bitter! you have 1200 channels of dancing with the stars! toil away under the party floor of the elite and bask in their intelligence and glowreeeeeeeeeeeeee

moi said...

Aunty: The globalists have it all wrong for sure. "Local" is the catchword of real change.

K9: Rottie off da chain. All is right with the world again. Now, if only you-know-who would come back to spar.

Heff said...

Man, I'll bet they had trouble remembering their lines....

moi said...

Heff: And they were all in German, too.

the Dread Pirate Rackham said...

totally true.
