From the YouTube contributor: “The most ridiculous 5 minutes of Moroder’s 1984 restoration of Fritz Lang’s Metropolis – taken from the Laserdisc release.”

Bizarre.

    The restored version is weirder… less quick cutting, more lingering on Maria’s outre dance moves… Lang builds up the feverish atmosphere with heavy symbolism and expressionist art direction. Moroder’s recuts and rescores these scenes as an odd MTV video.
