Now Bigger and With More Angry Workers!

I’ve always meant to buy myself a copy of the 1927 film Metropolis, Fritz Lang’s futuristic tale of class struggle and sexy robots, but I never got around to it (though I’ve seen it on tv a couple of times). Now I’m glad I waited.

    Not an unprecedented trajectory ….

    In related news, the story of Metropolis was co-authored by Lang and his wife, Thea von Harbou. Lang was anti-Nazi and left Germany in 1933. Von Harbou was pro-Nazi and stayed.

    What a coincidence. I just heard that they found a print of the complete, uncut original version of “Triumph of the Will” in Crawford, Texas.

    But in all seriousness, that’s pretty cool news.
