It’s the big daddy (mommy?) of Sci-Fi in Fritz Lang’s monsterpiece about the working class struggle and sexy robots. Look, I dunno what to say, this is an obelisk of a film that we all live in the shadow of. Monumental on so many levels, to carry the metaphor on the backs of so much labour (second metaphor).
