Review (1:44:07):

For this episode, Heat chose for us to watch the 2001 anime film Metropolis.  An amalgamation of Tezuka’s manga and Fritz Lang’s original silent film, this Rintaro helmed adaptation, featuring a screenplay by Katsuhiro Otomo and a soundtrack by Toshiyuki Honda, was done with remarkable gusto — listen to the full review below for more!

A few semi-related things: Zen reviewed Rintaro’s previous film X: The Movie here on the blog; Zen wrote a quick review of Metropolis along with lots of screen captures on my Tumblr page here; and, if you have any interest in how the Rintaro film compares to both the original and the manga, the YouTube channel Pause and Select has a great video about that here.

  1. Every few episodes we see a little more of Zen’s past, and it is always hilariously tragic.
