Apocalypto: Tribal Lunacy

"Apocalypto is old-fashioned storytelling at its most basic level. Moreover, it’s a largely successful piece of filmmaking..."

I just saw this, and while it was completely silly, excessive, and needlessly bloody, it was quite a damn entertaining and tense action-adventure thriller. So I'm glad you liked it too.

I'm seeing "Letters from Iwo Jima" today... don't know if you've seen it yet, but I'll let you know what I think.

Oh, and this line in your review is brilliant: "a mixture between Red Hot Chili Peppers front man Anthony Kiedis and The Crying Game’s Jade Davidson"

Thanks for reading John.

Haven't seen Iwo Jima yet, haven't even seen Flags of Our Fathers yet actually. Interested to see Iwo Jima and glad to hear you liked it but feel a bit daunted about having to do the catch-up reading of Flags.
