Things To Come


Mia Hansen-Løve’s fifth feature film as a director plays out a little like an archetypal country-and-western song: our hero (in this case, Isabelle Huppert’s Nathalie) loses a succession of the most valuable things and people in her life, yet somehow gets by, and even gets stronger. 419 more words

"Metropolis" v. "Things to Come"--Whose Future?

H.G. Wells is on record as having declared that he wanted “Things To Come,” the 1936 British film based upon his speculative writings to be nothing like Fritz Lang’s 1927 film “Metropolis.” Although Lang’s film, based upon a script by his then-wife Thea von Harbou, owed more than a little to Wells’ own 1895 novel “The Time Machine,” Wells now felt that his earlier vision of mankind devolved into bestial workers who toil under the ground and effete pleasure-lovers who exist above it was overly-simplified. 505 more words
