Not Rated (153 min) This influential film portrays a futuristic city sharply divided between the working class and city planners, but a working class prophet predicts the resolution to their differences when she falls in love with the son of the city’s mastermind. A silent expressionist masterpiece from German director Fritz Lang, who took over 17 months to shoot it, Metropolis is widely regarded as a pioneering work in dramatic science fiction.
