Metropolis Held Over

2010_06_11_metropolis.jpg Good news if you haven't been able to catch the new restoration of Fritz Lang's Metropolis: The Music Box has extended its run for another week. As Roger Ebert writes in his 4-star review: "Metropolis does what many great films do, creating a time, place and characters so striking that they become part of our arsenal of images for imagining the world. Lang filmed for nearly a year, driven by obsession, often cruel to his colleagues, a perfectionist madman, and the result is one of those films without which many others cannot be fully appreciated." So check out our earlier post and catch it while you can.
