    A film opera tour de force in real-time (as far as I could gather) with stunning artwork (film techniques, sets, etc.), an enchanting and a bewitching Brigitte Helm (I still don't know which one I liked best), but unfortunately also an all too easy outcome storywise with a rather corny final scene; I liked the idea behind it (head-heart-hand), but this was too much. The script has more small flaws, such as the fact that the workers spoiler, and the rather hastily introductions of the characters. Well, grumbletonian-mode off now: still more than deservedly a classic. 3 years 6 months ago

    @krakenzmama - This movie is among the very few silent films that even the average joe might have heard of. If someone can name 5-10 silents, you can be quite certain that Metropolis is one of them. It's also among the most respected and regarded films of all time. It's frequently referenced to as the best film of the 20s, and most all time lists as well as text books will reference to it. For a movie from 1927 it would be hard to be more known. 5 years 11 months ago
