Made at the tail end of the era of silent film, this was one of the biggest and best of them all. The images in Metropolis stick in your mind long after you have watched the film. A tower that stretches high above a cityscape. City roads packed with traffic, with airplanes and airships that fly through the skies above.
Gardens of pleasure, and Olympic stadiums. Workers straining themselves to exhaustion beneath the surfaces. A machine visualized as a literal! City streets in chaos with flooding. When you finish watching this film, you take its images with you, forever, whether you were a fan or not. It is unfortunate that the film had been so heavy butchered and edited over the years; much of this was done so American theater owners could get in more showings of the movie in a day, and thereby, turn larger profits.
Yes, this version of the movie, with its odd coloring effects and distinctly 80s soundtrack, is dated, especially compared to The Compete Metropolis release that came out from Kino Video several years back the same company that also reissued this version of the film But dated, or not…. The soundtrack, though dated, features great performances from some of the best performers of the day, and it is too bad that many of these artists do not really acknowledge their songs contributed to this film years later.
Running at just over 80 minutes, it is a relatively quick viewing experience, and its visuals will certainly keep your interest. In fact, some may argue that this version of the movie actually improves the pacing. It is, in many regards, a simple tale of the upper class and the lower class, with those at the top wanting to remain in isolation and not share the wealth, with those lower down simply wanting better working conditions and unity. Even though Metropolis is nearly a hundred years old, you will see parallels between this film and things that are going on in the world today.
In fact, it seems like with each passing year, the story told in this film, both in terms of its technology on display, and its tales of economic strife and struggle, are becoming more real. The Blu-ray Disc put out by Kino Video does an excellent job restoring the musical score, though the image quality is not up to that of the more thorough restoration effort of The Complete Metropolis, likely due to working with less-than-favorable source elements reconstructing this version of the film from the same remastered elements of The Complete Metropolis would have been far costlier and more time consuming, so this is understandable.
The Giorgio Moroder version of Metropolis is certainly dated in many regards, but it does not change the fact that it is a ton of fun to revisit this 80s take on a classic 20s silent film. The Complete Metropolis , restoring the film to nearly its full length, is the better version for silent film purists.
But for more casual viewers, fans of 80s rock-pop, or just those that are curious for one reason or another, this minute relic from is well worth checking out. For promotional use only.
