To those on this forum who recommended the Kino Video new 'pressing' of Metropolis - thanks a MILLION! Watched it last night with a couple friends and we were blown away. What a remarkable restoration of a truly monumental film. Absolutely terrific.

I saw this restored film in Ann Arbor last fall at the Michigan theater with live organ accompaniment. It just looked spectacular. The DVD looks great as well. I noticed one difference ( unrelated to PQ) between the restored film and the DVD and that is the beginning titles. There was a fairly elaborate build up of images and then the title Metropolis comes on in a very dramatic way. This was obviously original film footage that does not exist on the DVD. I'm not sure why they would have left this out and it did add a lot to the experience and drama of the film.


A great DVD however and not even worth discussing how much better it is than any previously available home video renditions.
