Metropolis

Great film of huge historical importance, but sadly silent movies are really Not My Thing. Generally speaking I have the attention span of a small thing with a short attention span. The majority of the time when I'm watching something at home I also have readily at hand something to read, fiddle with or doodle upon. Very quickly I realised that this was not going to work with a film that relies on you watching carefully so as not to miss flash cards explaining what on earth is going on. I found myself extraordinarily bored as I watched characters mime enthusiastically at each other for several minutes and then be told they said something 6 words long. I also couldn't help but laugh at the exagerated movements and facial expressions, particularly from the mad scientist. However this isn't the fault of the film in any way whatsoever and I can still appreciate the impressive scale of a film made nearly 80 years ago. The sf story is impressive and worthy of the praise it has received over the years, the historical value of watching a film from Germany of this period is also considerable and intersting to consider. One of those films that I'm glad I've finally seen, but can't really say I enjoyed at all.
