What are people saying?

  • nouvelle vague 1960's rating of the film High Treason

    Often referred to as Britain's version of Fritz Lang's "Metropolis" (1927),"High Treason" is a very different film.Yes the futuristic cities are similar, but the theme of this film is the threat to world peace,not modernisation and social injustice.The peace between two Superpowers is threatened by a terrorist group,financed by arms dealers.In this pacifist film,only the Peace league can save the world from disaster.
