If you loved the silent METROPOLIS, this is one right up your alley. A Russian early talkie based on Karel Capek’s R.U.R. as processed through the blender of Russian cinema. Yeah, it shouts “Capitalism bad, Communism good,” but the heavy-handed propaganda can be ignored and what is left is an amazing science-fiction epic with probably the best designed robots since METROPOLIS. The film is a visual treat and features not only an amazing battle between robot and humanity, but a bizarre scene of dancing robots that is absolute genius in its eccentricity and execution.
