Metropolis is a silent movie by fritz lang made in 1927 germany the movie has multiple themes and implies many things about modern day theories and views the movie entails many views on marxism, capitalism, industrialism, and organized religion, mostly.

Marxism (communism) in the film “metropolis” for this week’s film, i watched metropolis , a film directed by fritz lang this german expressionist film examines the differences between the wealthy and working classes through a science fiction-based, futuristic plot.
Unlike marxism, however, metropolis promotes peaceful protests rather than violent rebellions it is when the robot maria tells the workers to revolt, which is what marxism teaches as the best solution to class discord, that everything becomes chaotic.
Metropolis is strongly suggestive of class and social issues there is however, a religious message buried in the film in a messianic form the master of metropolis is very much a dictator in metropolis.
Metropolis and marxism i was quite surprised to be watching a 1920s silent film in religious studies class this week, but after the discussion in class on monday, it made a lot of sense why we watched it.
