    I did see METROPOLIS (also a silent film) way back when. This was by Fritz Lang.

    I haven’t seen Tarkovsky’s movies (in particular, SOLARIS). So I hear that is great.

    I saw it! Worth watching if you’ve already seen other silent classics like Nosferatu, The Cabinet of Dr Caligari, Cabiria, The Thief of Bagdad, etc.

    There is a bit of revolutionary propaganda in it, but that’s to be expected I suppose.
