art deco sketch art of Michael Kaluta, from the artwork book of the movie "Metropolis", the incredible 1927 silent film


I didn't want to watch the silent film, not once I learned that a anime version with English vocals was made. It's a magnificent epic story that varies a lot from the original, and I recommend it highly. The original was written about on Wikipedia, and seems to be a very difficult story to follow, and that must be why it was editted differently by anyone who could, resulting in every known copy that existed from the 1930's to the 1990's having about 30 minutes cut from it to make the story cohesive. Watch the anime version for enjoyment, or the original if you're a film afficianado. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0293416/
