Metropolis (2001)

The Younger Son and I have seen Metropolis before but it's been ages, so we decided to watch it again. This is the first time for The Husband to see it. The film, originally released in 2001, is directed by Rintaro. We watched it in Japanese with English subtitles. The Younger Son and I like it better now than when we first saw it. The Husband is not a fan.

Youtube has it online (using the English dub) in 11 sections. Part 1:

part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5, part 6, part 7, part 8, part 9, part 10 (no audio), part 11 (no audio in this last part)

Moria makes special note of the backgrounds and the score. The New York Times describes it as
a hallucinatory tour de force of color, perspective and scale, virtually encapsulates the history of Japanese animation.
