The original sci-fi robot masterpiece. Metropolis.

I can still remember the first time I saw Metropolis.  Somehow Lang figured out how to design a robot of extraordinary style and power (a similar design concept would be applied to Bottin's Robocop later)... made so many years before robots were real things.  But this is no Robbie... it is a machine which somehow embodies so much "life" it disturbs us, yet it is the beauty of the design which entices me most... what a strange combination he has married together in his messianic Maria.
