Osamu Tezuka's Metropolis
JP, 2001, 35 mm, VO JP ST FR & NL OND, 107'
Lang's Metropolis was inspiration for this spectacular dieselpunk anime, adapted from Osamu Tezuka's manga, in which a female android called Tima struggles against a destiny in which she will be deployed as a superweapon. The cityscapes are stunning, with a retro feel that's echoed in the ragtime-adjacent score and unexpected use of a Ray Charles hit.
