Fritz Lang Germany, 1927

Joel's rating of the film Metropolis

It's madness that this film is still so compellingly watchable. It shows the timelessness of it's story and the power of it's images. It's everything you want from the classic dystopian society overthrow by the underdog. Sure the romance is a bit melodrama but for a film like this to be so timeless shows what a feat it is.
