Directed by Fritz Lang. Here’s the most complete version of Fritz Lang’s visually staggering futuristic epic, containing 25 minutes of lost footage newly discovered in 2010! It tells of a gleaming, wealthy modern city powered by poor, dirty subterranean laborers and machines—and of an evil, messianic robot who foments a destructive workers’ revolt. Silent with music track.
(Germany, 1927, English intertitles, b&w, 148 min.)
