Woman In The Moon

Fritz Lang’s batty space melodrama from 1929 takes 5 intrepid travellers to the moon in search of… gold! Following his previous stunner Metropolis, Woman In The Moon is a late blast of Lang’s unfettered visual genius before his more restrained but not less brilliant Hollywood period. A special salute to the actor Fritz Rasp who brings a unique ferocity to his role as the treacherous, shape-shifting Walt Turner.
