This movie has stuck in my brain for a looooooooong time. I’ve likely had dreams about it. It has picked at me off and on forever and I don’t completely understand why I am only now getting around to watching it again.
It seems like a very timely story and should be useful to people enduring America in the post-World War II fantasy we’ve propped up for ourselves to play in for a while until it’s time to grow up and get real. And by “real” I mean real ancient Greek civilization, because they knew what time it was. Then the idiot Christians (no offense, Jesus, because you were probably a cool guy yourself) kept pouring water on the Greeks until the entire Earth forgot everything important. But that’s another story!!!
