The Complete Metropolis
2010, Not rated, 149 min. Directed by Fritz Lang. Starring Brigitte Helm, Alfred Abel, Gustav Froelich and Rudolf Klein-Rogge.
With Live Score: The expressionist German sci-fi wasn't appreciated in its time and was hacked to bits, but music producer Giorgio Moroder pieced together what was thought to be the original in 1984 with a baller soundtrack and very cool mods. But then, in 2005 a truly full cut was discovered and restored. This is Lang's original vision, set to a live score by David DiDonato.
