Metropolis (Classical Film Scripts S)

£6.99

Product description

One of the last examples of the imaginative - but often monstrous - grandeur of the golden period of the German film, 'Metropolis', made in 1926, is a brilliant piece of expressionist design with moments of incredible beauty and power as well as absurd oddities that defy analysis. The theme is simple and dramatic - the struggle between the workers and the ruling elite in the archetypal machine-city of the future.

The script contained in this volume was built up from a shot-by-shot viewing of the film itself, with additional material inserted from the original novel by Thea von Harbou. There is introductory material by Paul M. Jensen and Siegfried Kracauer, and the text is illustrated with 48 stills.

Signs of aging and discolouration on the pages and dust jacket, refer to pictures for more details.
