213. Metropolis (2001)
It's our emotions. They vibrate, and all we can do is move forward within that amplitude. But without affirming them, we can't survive.
The writer and artist who created "Astro Boy" and the director of "Akira" team up to create a futuristic movie loosely based upon Fritz Lang's silent masterpiece (and first movie on this blog) "Metropolis".... I got a little excited just typing that! This movie also has one of the greatest climax curveballs of all time. Not really a twist, but an unexpected addition that just comes out of nowhere and just makes the movie outstanding. I'll give you a hint: it has a little something to do with the great Ray Charles.
