Metropolis (1927)

1 comment:

  1. people always say this movie is subversive because it portrays class struggle, but what is the message at the end of the film--the idea that "the mediator" is the heart between the hand "the workers" and the head "the rich" is this a commentary on the managerial class/bureaucracy as being what stops class conflict from turning into a revolution and if so, whose side is maria on and which maria do we identify with?
