Many of the images, ideas and characters, first seen in this birth of science fiction cinema still prevail today, setting the standard for modern practitioners. The story itself, the timeless struggle between capital and labour, conjures up images as powerful and relevant as when it was first released. A truly landmark film.


“Few films have ever been more visually exhilarating... the first great sci-fi film... astonishing originality”

Roger Ebert
