Ilium

Image
 "In the distant future, the Trojan War breaks out in the shadow of Mount Olympus on Mars, under the watchful eye of Zeus and his ilk. Dirty battles between the most vengeful gods begin. On Earth, the few remaining humans pursue a lost past and a devastating truth. Meanwhile, four sentient machines set off from Jupiterian space to investigate and attempt to shut down potentially catastrophic emissions emanating from a tall mountaintop on the inhabited surface of the Red Planet." This is the synopsis of Ilium, a novel written by Dan Simmons and of which I have made this new personal visual development that you can see here:

Synopsis I didn't know when I first saw this movie. This led me to have no idea what I was going to see, with the subsequent impact.

So it was. Especially since the sound was out of rhythm. Seeing The Holy Mountain for the first time with the sound out of sync... is quite an experience. I didn't actually watch the whole thing because I didn't see any point in it. Later, I saw it in optimal conditions and that's when I said: "oh...ok". And it hooked me. And what an ending. Obviously,

 A moment ago I finished watching the extended version of " Doctor Sleep ", the sequel to the film to which I dedicate episode 9 of Framefilms and that you can see in this video, and I liked it a lot. I had already seen the movie version and was curious to see this version that is about 30 minutes longer. A worthy sequel, in my opinion.
