Metropolis

i had a lot of weird issues with the muddled themes and disparate influences of the plot of this movie. I was very excited to see some genuine leftist politics but got instead a "stick to the status quo."

None of that really matters or is fair to say, though. This came out in a completely different country in a completely different time when the medium was completely different. It watches more like a fantastic, odd play than it does a normal movie. It is honestly just stunning despite all of its glaring flaws and idiosyncrasies. I cannot imagine seeing something like this as someone who could count on their fingers the amounts of movies they'd seen. For what it is, this is absolutely incredible.
