In 1984, Academy Award®-winning composer Giorgio Moroder introduced Fritz Lang’s science fiction epic METROPOLIS to a new generation of moviegoers. Working in collaboration with film archives around the world, he supervised a special reconstruction of the film, with color tinting, fewer inter-titles and newly restored footage. A pioneer in the field of digital music, Moroder backed this special edition with a throbbing new score, punctuated with pop songs from some of the biggest stars of the early MTV era: Freddie Mercury, Pat Benatar, Adam Ant, Bonnie Tyler, Loverboy and others. Presented exactly as it appeared upon its release in 1984 and mastered from an archival 35mm print.

IT WAS VERY GOOD
the perfect film to watch, now that the world has ended. welcome to the afterlife.
Incredible visuals and music.
If the idea of watching a silent movie gives you the chills, then give this one a try.
With color tinting and a cool, 80s soundtrack, you will see a movie that just CAN'T be re-made.
It's way ahead of it's time and applies, more than ever, to what's happening in the world today.
Don't pass it up!
