100 Years of Dystopia Series Episode 1

We Built This City On Rock And Ro-oooll (too bad it’s a silent film)

Crime!  Inflation!  Oppression!  Yes, today’s headlines look bad, but not as bleak as the Metropolis that director Fritz Lang envisioned all the way back in 1927.  Will the skyscrapers of the future fall like the Tower of Babel after a sexy fem-bot incites factory workers to tear down the machines that run their city?  And should a mama’s boy who defies his moneybags father just so he can court a virgin in the urban underbelly be called a savior, or the heart of the problem?  Start exploring 100 Years of Dystopia when you Donate for Gold Level now!
