Metropolis: Lang Time No See!

current location: DD4 9FF

For anyone who's not already read it courtesy of ffutures, the rediscovery of the full length version of Fritz Lang's Metropolis is being reported by Zeit Online.

The original version was only shown for a few months in Germany in 1927; all versions seen since then have been considerably edited. The longest cut known to exist previously was just under two hours long; the newly rediscovered copy extends that by about an hour and a half!

Hurrah! I hope it'll make it to DVD!
I love Lang's Die Nibelungen, too.
