Next to Carl Dreyer's The Passion of Joan of Arc, Fritz Lang's Metropolis is the second-most screened silent film in these parts, and it's easy to see why. Lang's dreary world of heavily mechanized society, heartless aristocrats and robotic doppelgangers was a crucial commentary on the ongoing industrialization of the time, and Fritz just wanted an understanding between the “head and the heart”— or engineering and humanity— to exist in society (wonder what ol' Fritz would think of this century, eh?). Enjoy the full extended version at a matinee screening today, with organist Peter Richard Conte performing a live score.
