Apocalyptic

"I saw a hole in the man.
Deep like a hunger that he will never fill.
It is what makes him sad and will make him want.
He will go on taking and taking.
Until one day the world will say:
I am no more and have nothing left to give." 

Apocalypto, 2006, dir. by Mel Gibson 

I seldom blog about movies here but I feel that Apocalypto bears more than a passing mention. No matter which side of the religious fence one is in, the movie raises environmental and world consciousness -- a considerable achievement at an age when most movies are mere escapist fares peopled by dreamed-of characters running on woeful themes.
