Metropolis

I'm back. I have to say, Cinema 21 has moved to the top of my list, as far as 'theatres I'd go back to'. Nice place, very comfy seating, and they had the previews running BEFORE the movie time, so the movie started when the time came, not "20 minutes of previews later". But enough about that.

As for 'Metropolis' itself, well...

WOW


If you've ever seen it, if you've NEVER seen it, I cannot stress enough how much you need to go to this. I was in awe, the entire way through, at how good it looked. I saw details I've never known before. I saw scenes and entire sequences I've never known before. I had a better understanding of the story than ever before (and I own the book, so I knew it anyway). Fucking INCREDIBLE. I was close to tears, if that says anything.

There were only two down moments. One, the projector had a problem about 2/3 of the way through, and just kinda stopped, but they got it going again within a few minutes. Also, the crowd got to giggling during the scenes of the Robot-Maria dancing in Yoshiwara...which REALLY pissed me off. How immature do you have to be to giggle at this? Christ, what are you doing watching this movie of that makes you giggle? Go back to Adam Sandler films, you yobbos.

OK, just had to get that out. Go see it...PLEASE. This is cinema history, kids. This is a film that started more things than you can even imagine. Beyond being a great story, and a beautiful film, this is IMPORTANT, dammit. It saddens me to think that there are parts of this film which will NEVER be seen, lost to all time. I get hope from seeing that it's getting, more and more, the respect and honor it deserves.
