  • Loss of Sensation

    1935. USSR. Directed by Aleksandr Andriyevsky. Virtually unseen in the U.S. for 75 years, Andriyevsky's liberal film version of Karel Capek's popular 1920 play, R.U.R., in which the notion of robots was introduced, imagines industrialists getting rid of human workers in favor of automatons who respond to the notes of a saxophone.
