    The Tower of Babel in Fritz Lang's Metropolis

  • Emma Smith

    10. Metropolis (1927) – This film is the patriarch of futurist cinema, the great-great-grandaddy of them all. A silent film, it keeps you interested with its wonderful sets evoking the then brand new Art Deco style and using it to depict a vast future city of both luxury and hardship. It’s notable from a futurist perspective mainly for being one of the first films to feature the concept of an android, exploring the dichotomy between human and machine. (FutureConscience, 2010)
