Dir. Fritz Lang. 1927, 148 mins. DCP. With Brigitte Helm. Restored in 2010 to its full length after 25 minutes of previously lost footage was rediscovered in Argentina, Fritz Lang’s futuristic masterpiece (set in the year 2000) will be shown in its complete form, with Gottfried Huppertz’s original orchestral score. The eponymous city is divided in two—the wealthy live in towering luxurious skyscrapers, and slave laborers toil below ground to keep the machinery going. Though Stanley Kubrick reportedly found it a bit “silly,” he also put it on a list of his favorite movies.
