Metropolis

I just saw the restored original version. Apparently a complete 16mm copy of the the original movie was found in Argentina. The 16mm edition was spliced into the edited versions available so the image quality bounces back and forth at times where the original large format film has been lost.

I enjoyed watching it. I mean, how many silent black and white movies do you get to see these days anyway? Evil machine man, explosions, floods, revival meetings in catacombs,the seven deadly sins animated, etc. The actors must have had a boatload of fun hamming it up for the flick. Metropolis is leaving the theater tomorrow. This is not surprising since I literally had my own private showing for $5.
