“Thanks to a stroke of luck, we now have a nearly complete restoration of the monocled master’s future-shock epic. This is as close as we’re likely to get to what those sitting in the UFA-Palast saw when the lights went down: Lang’s vision of claustrophobic skylines, underground prole revolutions and fembots run amok before the censors had their Night of the Long Scissors. Who cares that the found footage is scratchy and scarred by time? It’s all that easier to identify what we once thought was gone forever—and what now adds even more depth to a delirious, dreamlike class parable whose dystopia still feels exhilaratingly modern.”
David Fear, Time Out New York
