ODDITIES THEATER: Metropolis (1927)

Damn it’s cold, but hey it’s still Saturday! We may be frozen, but we’re still weird, by god. So let’s do this… let’s get weird.

Even in the early days of film, people we’re still getting weird. Today’s film was made in 1927, but it still holds up as one of the coolest, weirdest flicks of all time. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times: when you’re weird, you’re timeless. Weird transcends time. We’re wild and free, baby.

Fritz Lang was a stunning visual artist, as you can tell just by scanning these screenshots. It’s highly probable his films inspired all your favorite visionary directors working today. I’m excited to rewatch this one. It’s been far too long. I need a jolt of inspiration to have me hammering these keys a little harder. Hopefully this’ll do the trick.

Oh, by the way, a ton of my books are free on kindle this weekend. Head over to Amazon and check it out. Maybe one day someone will make a weird little film out of one of my stories. We could feature it here on Oddities Theater! If that ever happens, I suppose that would be a fitting end to the Oddities Theater project. Stranger things have happened.

Alright alright, people. Fritz Lang! Metropolis! Let’s do this!

Stay warm.
