Metropolis Un-Amputated


So it turns out a museum in Buenos Aires has been in possession of a complete copy of the visually entrancing Metropolis the whole time - including the quarter of the film chopped out and believed lost forever when it was dumbed-down for American audiences. Read the full story at Zeit Online.

Oh, right. We had that lying around too.

If you do some research, you'll discover we have Lovecraft's Necronomicon in one of our national universities too.

We are also keeping a few original nazis alive, in case somebody else needs them later. Hope that happens soon because unlike book and films these expire pretty fast.

Ooh. That is one of my favorite films...hope they let the rest of us see the little bits they found lying about. I do wish they'd let Canadians have the not dumbed down versions of things...just because we share the same continent it's not contagious. Well I hope not...
