Metropolis Movie Poster

Fritz Lang is the stylistic father of science fiction movies and film noir, his epic "Metropolis" the template from which hundreds of later movies borrowed or simply imitated. Lang's other early films in both silent and "talkie" categories have had tremendous influences well beyond the films themselves.
