This is a very old silent movie (1925) which Salina (my wife) had to
watch for a class she is taking at UW Bothell. It was very slow and
we both kept falling asleep.

In the movie, Metropolis is a utopian city managed by one man, the
Master. The workers in the city are very oppressed and revolt. Given
that this movie was made in Germany, and what was going on there at
the time, this is a fascinating snapshot of thinking at the time. How
should society be organized?
