Show #8 – Gamera 3: Revenge of Iris follow up!
For this episode, Heat chose for us to watch the 2001 anime film Metropolis. A stunning looking and sounding amalgam of Osamu Tezuka’s manga and Fritz Lang’s original silent masterpiece, this Rintaro helmed adaptation — featuring a screenplay by Katsuhiro Otomo and a soundtrack by Toshiyuki Honda — was done with remarkable gusto. Tune in for our full review, breakdown, and discussion!
- My written review of Rintaro’s previous film X: The Movie.
- A selection of screen caps from Metropolis can be found here.
- Pause and Select has a great video comparing the different versions of Metropolis here.
