Metropolis


Have you guys ever heard of "Metropolis"?

"Metropolis is a 1927 German expressionist film in the science-fiction genre directed by Fritz Lang. Produced in Germany during a stable period of the Weimar Republic, Metropolis is set in a futuristic urban dystopia and makes use of the sci-fi context to explore a political theme of the day: the social crisis between workers and owners in capitalism." via Wikipedia

Here's a clip from the original motion picture.



Anyway I would love to see this movie remade today, with the technology we have now, it would be such a sight if it was done correctly.

Artist like Janelle Monae used this film for an adaptation to her album, and it's pretty damn amazing!




but yeah that's just a thought! Maybe someone will read this and go "ohhh yeah Let's do it!!!!"

Wishful thinking
