Portland's own Filmusik is reaching outside our town's borders to enlist Boston's Bent Knee ensemble for a live music presentation of their score for Fritz Lang's Metropolis at the Hollywood Theatre this Friday.

I don't really have much to add to what I said about the film when it last played in PDX, except that when a Fritz Lang film, especially Metropolis, plays on a big screen in your town, you'd better get your ass in a seat for it.  A world class filmmaker's (arguably) greatest work matched with a live original score is an occasion worth leaving the house for, friends.

Here's the trailer:

And, as a bonus, a fascinating, 50 minute-long interview with Lang conducted by director William Friedkin:

Filmusik Organ Grinders presents Metropolis with Bent Knee at the Hollywood Theatre on Friday, August 17th at 8pm.  More info available here.
