Metropolis Metropolis, a visionary and elaborate spectacle by director Fritz Lang is an epic projection of a futuristic city divided into a working and an elite class. Its exhilarating climax brings the city to its knees, as the classes clash against each other. In the 21st-Century, a de-humanized proletariat labors non-stop in a miserable subterranean city beneath a luxurious city of mile-high skyscrapers, flying automobiles, palatial architectural idylls, tubes and tunnels. With stunningly inventive special effects, Lang's allegorical narrative and architectural vision creates a highly stylized vision of a not-so-unlikely future (especially for 1926 when the film was made.) As the elite frolic above the clouds, thousands of miserable workers toil night and day inside the belly of the gigantic machine that runs the entire city. Metropolis is controlled by a sinister authoritarian whose son, Freder, rejects his father's callous philosophy and attitude towards laborers. Meek though they are, the workers are encouraged by Maria, a wistful young woman who wills her comrades to embrace patience and silent strength. Upon discovering her influence upon the workers, a mad scientist kidnaps Maria and creates a robot in her image that will incite the workers to revolt. As Freder races against time to save Maria and curtail the damage done by her doppelganger robot, Metropolis is enveloped in chaos and the classes are brought together in a breathtaking and highly moralistic climax.

Madonna - Truth or Dare Madonna is perhaps the most postmodern of all pop stars, and this acclaimed documentary is prime evidence of that. Madonna enlisted Harvard graduate Alex Keshishian to follow her around with a camera during her 1991 "Blonde Ambition" tour, and the result is one of the most candid glimpses into a pop star's life and personality ever produced. Concert footage, family visits, dance practice, hotel room makeup sessions, and even a visit to the dentist with then-boyfriend Warren Beatty are just some of the places that Madonna lets us be involved in. This is more than just a fun pop documentary - it is also both a celebration and critique of the invasive, all-encompassing media culture that defines America today.
