Metropolis by Fritz Lang ( Visual )

"The future. Metropolis is a wonderful city, high above the ground its towers stand. The people prosper, the economy is flourishing, the suspended streets are busy. But Metropolis also has a great secret, so hidden that not even Freder Fredersen, son of founder Joh Fredersen knows about it. He is spending his free time in the Eternal Gardens, when suddenly a woman shows up, with what looks like a class of children. They're from the City of Workers, in the depth, Freder learns. "These are your brothers," she tells the children, before she is forced to leave. Freder is so intrigued he follows them into the depth and doesn't like what he sees. The workers are exploited, they must do labor like robots. Freder tries to convince his father to change, while the woman tries to keep workers' morale high by predicting a man will stand up that will mediate. Someone that will use both hands and head, someone that will be the heart." -- www.imdb.com

Fritz Langs Dr. Mabuse, der Spieler ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2004 in German and Undetermined and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Der Psychoanalytiker Dr. Mabuse betreibt in den 20er Jahren unter Einsatz hypnotischer Fähigkeiten die Vergrößerung seines Reichtums und die Erweiterung seiner Macht. Bis ihm ein Staatsanwalt das Handwerk legt, hat er Unheil über viele Menschen gebracht. Fritz Langs zweiteiliger Stummfilm ("Der Große Spieler - ein Bild der Zeit". "Inferno, ein Spiel um Menschen unserer Zeit") erweist sich über seine melodramatische Kriminalgeschichte hinaus als präzise dramaturgische und formale Konstruktion, die in beinahe dokumentarischer Weise nicht nur die Lebenshaltung veschiedener Gesellschaftsschichten und die Vergnügungssucht und Dekadenz von Großbürgertum und Kleinadel attackiert, sondern auch die Bedingungen aufzeigt, unter denen eine Gesellschaft zwischen Chaos und Tyrannei einem "Übermenschen" vefallen kann. Filmhistorisch belegt der Film die Übergänge vom Expressionismus zur Neuen Sachlichkeit. (Lexikon des internationalen Films)
