Review (1:44:07):

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!
