Have you heard? Two years ago the missing 25 minutes of Metropolis, one of the greatest silent films ever, was found in Argentina. That print has now been restored as best it can be by the Murnau Foundation and for the first time since it's premiere in Berlin in 1927, the Metropolis can finally be seen in it's entirety with the original score!!! I haven't been this excited to see a film since... I've never been this excited to see a film! It really is a miracle that the print no one thought existed (the film was cut immediately after it's premiere because a 2.5 hour movie wasn't deemed commercial enough) was found just in time and the technology existed in order to restore it.
Metropolis will be shown at select theatres this summer, and you can check this website regularly to see if it's coming to a cinema near you. And Kino will be releasing it on DVD in November.
