Giorgio Moroder Presents: Metropolis

Not the painstaking 2010 restoration, but synth-loving composer Giorgio Moroder's 1984 rebuild of Fritz Lang's 1927 classic. The epic fantasy about a worker's rebellion in a futuristic city and the cruel capitalists who seek to quash the uprising with the help of a seductive robotic doppelgänger is as prescient now as it was 80-odd years ago. Plus, Moroder's early-MTV-era score--featuring songs by Pat Benatar, Freddie Mercury, Bonnie Tyler, Adam Ant and more--adds a nostalgic, new wave charm to the sci-fi trappings. 80 minutes
