Metropolis

Silent films are tough to sell to today's audience, and despite its iconic status, Metropolis was always going to be hard to watch. And after three hours sleep, I was knackered by the end of the film. But I'm glad I watched it. It was my first time that I have seen a full silent film, something that is unusual for me as a film maker. Personally, I do not ever want to make a full length silent film, although making parodies are a lot of fun...

And do not forget, this was at the cinema, not on DVD or on the TV. So I actually watched this film, in its proper setting. My aim now is to one day get my films into these cinemas...and I got a long way to go!
