THINGS TO COME (1936)
William Cameron Menzies’ background as an art director shines through in this stylized tale of Everytown, as the city evolves over 100 years. H. G. Wells despised Fritz Lang’s METROPOLIS (1927) and wanted the adaptation of his own book “The Shape of Things to Come" to stand apart. The resulting film’s politics were certainly different, but the striking visuals created by Menzies and artist/art director Vincent Korda were equally impressive and influential — particularly the visionary future world of Everytown, 2036. DIR William Cameron Menzies; SCR H. G. Wells, from his novel; PROD Alexander Korda. UK, 1936, b&w, 97 min, HDCam. NOT RATED
