The film Metropolis
has been restored and re-translated
(NYT) to bring back the director's original vision. From the article: "Far from a historical curio, 'Metropolis' arrives, three-quarters of a century late, like an artifact from the future. At last we have the movie every would-be cinematic visionary has been trying to make since 1927." Check out these accompanying cool photos from the making of metropolis
(pop-up). I hope they do a wide release to theaters. Luckily they've restored the original score and decided not to use the 1984 re-release soundtrack
featuring Pat Benatar, Billy Squier, and Adam Ant. When I rented that version I had to turn off the sound completely.
