While we're on a movie kick, what movies have you watched the most times, and what made you want to watch them more than once? I knew of people in LA who had seen The Rocky Horror Picture Show hundreds of times. I never saw it until last year. My opinion: Wizard of Oz: When I was a kid, this was on every year around Easter for some reason. All That Jazz: I just loved that movie for some reason; I think because I feel a strong connection to the line and recurring theme, approx: "life is what happens while you're on the wire [referring to a tight-rope as a metaphor for taking risks], and the rest is just waiting". Christmas TV movies: Watched as a kid for obvious reasons - ie. they were on every year. Sound of Music - an all time family favorite But beyond a doubt, Metropolis hooked me unlike any other movie. I probably watched it ten times within a month of the first viewing. So much about this movie works for me that I don't even know where to begin. It is a lesson for all time, a love story, a coming of age story, a science fiction story [the first to use the idea of a robot], a story about excess, social strife, and the separation of the classes. It is the story of how civilizations rise and fall, and a story that ends with hope and the dawn of a new age. It is also a story seen through the eyes of one of the all time grand masters of cinema.
