A film by Fritz Lang
1927 · 150 mins · Sci-Fi & Fantasy, Classics

Regular price $14.00

"METROPOLIS - a dream and a nightmare of the future: an anticipation of a world with exploited masses buried beneath a city, a struggle between the technological and the spiritual... is undoubtedly one of the best known of silent films." Phillipa Hawker, THE AGE
