This silent presentation tells the story of people who take a trip to the moon and discover water, atmosphere and gold!
Fritz Lang's last silent film is nothing special, looking more like the work of Lang's wife and screenwriter (and Nazi-to-be) Thea von Harbou.
In Lang's overlong but intriguing space oddity, the realities of flight clash with the reveries of the characters.
Mirroring the director's own passions for fantasy literature, Gustav's youthful optimism disproves the too-superficial reading of Lang as a monocled, perfectionist tyrant.
In this 169-minute version, which restores the film closer to Lang's original vision than any other video release, the film proves itself a terrific entertainment with hints of greatness.
Magnificent science fiction epic.
As opposed to the furious ellipsis of Spies, the launchpad countdown does not arrive until after the midway point, Lang's intro leisurely laying in human detail to contrast with the sense of dwarfing technology to follow.
The last silent film by Fritz Lang.
