Abstract: Beginning with the onset of the industrial revolution, urban spatial issues have become increasingly complex as cities have grown in size and density and technology has changed the way we use and travel through space. In response to those rapidly changing dynamics of architecture and the city, many filmmakers of the twentieth century began to use the modern art of cinema to examine the issues generated by these transitions. A few early silent filmmakers utilized cinematic means to create unprecedented images of architecture and the city. They utilized formal aspects of cinema, such as sets, movement, and composition in order to create new experiences of the space of architecture and the modern city. Films such as The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and Metropolis are well known examples of such films.
