Metropolis aesthetics

This week I drove for the first time on the second floor of Mexico City's Periférico, the longest "slow-way" in the world.
It has a resemblance to the aesthetics of Metropolis. In that sense it is nice to see/use it, since you feel being in the wrong futuristic movie, remade 80 years later.

Dalí also took advantage of Metropolis. And Vogue. And Greg Gorman. And George Lucas, and everybody else...

Absolutely! This movie is influential until today ... Janelle Monáe, she loves to play with that aesthetic too: http://colleenvoiceover.files.wordpress.com/2010/04/janellemonae_metropolis.jpg

Jaja, andamos sincronizados, ya verás por qué.

Y sí, sólo esperemos que en el DF haya una linda heroína y que la clase trabajadora se rebele con éxito.
