Fritz Lang

Another masterpiece by Fritz Lang. It questions the morals of our justice system, and is a warning to neglecting parents. ‘In the Hall of the Mountain King’ is used as a leitmotif for the serial killer to convey his presence when off screen and is even tied into the main plot. 53 more words

Blu-ray review: Metropolis

Starring: Brigitte Helm, Gustav Frohlic
Director: Fritz Lang
Rating: 10/10

The allegorical storyline by Thea von Harbou, with its wishy-washy message that “the mediator between head and hands must be the heart” might verge on dim-witted, but Fritz Lang’s silent blockbuster remains a tour de force, a barrage of dazzling science fiction imagery that has shaped the imaginations of movie-goers for generations. 647 more words

Elysium (2013)

Do not see Elysium for a sombre discussion on class and inequality; this is big guns and tats territory. Set in 2154, this action thriller centers around Max (Matt Damon, in a muscular role), a good guy who lives in a semi-apocalyptic Los Angeles (think Mad Max, but with less leather). 207 more words
