Apocalypto & Other Hits


Here are five movies that over the years have shaped my sense of drama & thematic design to a very powerful degree:

Braveheart

Apocalypto

Unforgiven

Last of the Mohicans

Gladiator

All five of these films feature a strong male protagonist unafraid of shedding copious quantities of blood in order to accomplish their quests–always righteous, naturally–epic orchestral scores that make you feel like you’re inside the movie (well, maybe not Unforgiven), and themes of redemption & struggle against the inner darkness. I love them all, and consider them some of the finest moments in movie making history. Each plays a part in shaping my view of fiction/non-fiction story elements.

Thanks for tuning in–more to follow….
