Fritz Lang's Metropolis Philly Film Event

user
Partnering with the Friends of the Wanamaker Organ and hosted by Macy's Center City, attendees were treated to a truly unique Philly film event by pairing Fritz Lang's 1927 restored sci-fi work of art with the historic Wanamaker Organ, fantastically played by Peter Richard Conte. Metropolis is an ambitious film, even by today's standard in terms of themes explored. It mixes in a myriad of religious doctrine, including a savior/mediator and the dual perception of women throughout history ...

user
The Philadelphia Film Society, in partnership with Friends of the Wanamaker Organ and hosted by Macy’s Center City, announces a benefit screening of the newly restored Metropolis, Fritz Lang’s 1927 silent sci-fi masterpiece. Grand Court Organist Peter Richard Conte will improvise an accompaniment using the full resources of the Wanamaker Organ while incorporating many of the 'signature tunes' from the original Gottfried Huppertz score. Taking place in Macy’s magnificent Grand Court, on Sa...

The 60th Berlinale--Retrospektively Speaking

user
by Richard Traubner The Retrospektive at the Berlinale usually excites all types of film historians, curators, museum personnel, and other interested parties--especially when it's a German subject. This year, a restored version of Fritz Lang's 1927 Metropolis trumped the Retrospektive itself, which was a look-back at significant and sometimes controversial films shown at the film festival since it began in 1951--in far warmer June weather.     Many of these films...

Claus Friede, the curator of the Focus' section, says that the selection of 12 international feature and documentary films presents: "metropolises of extreme contrasts.

Kino Classics: The Best Of World Cinema

Friday, June 29--------The general public perhaps doesn't realize that the first step for any film to have a chance at a theatrical career is the commitment of the film distributor to take the financial risk to bring the film to a wider public. When the films in question are artistic expressions by some of cinema's most lauded auteurs, that risk is not necessarily any smaller, but the rewards certainly are larger. That about sums up the commitment to excellence that New York-based arthou...

Factotum screened at Hamburg a modest fest in a big city

user
Dropping in on the Hamburg film festival on the way back from San Sebastian is something like stopping off at a neighbourhood bar for a nightcap after a gala bash at the Waldorf. Which is not to say that Hamburg is not interesting or lacking in films of merit -- just that it's on a much smaller scale (although Hamburg, as a city, is far bigger than San Sebastian) and is geared to the tastes of the local film-buff public, rather than to industry professionals. Films are shown in five venues, mo...

Fritz Lang's rare Spione restored for London Festgoers

user
FRITZ LANG’S “SPIONE”, 1929, RESTOREDA major event of the current London Film Festival was a showing of a listening, newly restored print of Fritz Lang’s 1929 “SPIONE” (Spies). Appearing on the cusp of the sound era this was one of the final monuments of the silent cinema. The film is, to some degree, a reworking of Lang’s earlier “Dr. Mabuse", and is an extremely fanciful espionage story, apparently set in a mythological Czechoslovakia, with Japanese, German and British agents f...
