Fritz Lang’s Metropolis was required viewing for my Communications class in University and while others slipped out the back I sat through it with a 16 OZ cup of something very dark from the Second Cup on St-Denis and was blown away this classic Sci-Fi masterpiece. Visually it is was so compelling to watch that you gladly sit through the lengthly silent film. And apparently they had even cut 25 minutes for the version we sat through in University.
Well it turns out some movie fanatics found those extra minutes in some vault in Argentina off all places a little while back and have been restoring it digitally and its set to premier in London.
