Totaly NSFW dance

After I saw Tetsuo a few years ago, I went around on the internet trying to make sense of what the hell I just saw.  I came across somebody that said the atmosphere of the film and more specifically the girlfirend’s dance somehow reminded him of Fritz Lang’s Metropolis.

So, now that I have this blog, let’s have a look.

Metropolis (Fritz Lang, 1927)

In both scenes, our main character has a dream (vision or hallucination) where their romantic interest dances in a way that makes her seem possessed. The evil clone of Maria dances in a club where she twists the minds of the men there, while the Slaryman’s Girlfriend in Tetsuo…… plans on raping him. Both men are equally shocked by their visions.

And yes, I will post the occasional bizarre or shocking image. Might as well get that out of the way from the start.
