I hope its better than that crop circle movie, that sucked the big one. And the passion really sucked too. Unbreakable was fucking cool though
In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

As a reputed atheist, the reverential nature of his film was surprising, but Pasolini himself said &If you know that I am an unbeliever, then you know me better than I do myself. I may be an unbeliever, but I am an unbeliever who has a nostalgia for a belief.&

I wish I could see that old classic film with Yul Brynner, “Kings of the Sun”. I found a couple of comments about this film that I converted into one here:

Mayans as they are defeated by the Toltecs and the royal family and troops retreat to the palace. But ahh, the escape via tunnel and ultimately ship, to the Gulf coast of America. And yes, the final battle with the native Indians coming to the aid of the Mayans (no place to run this time!). It describes the flight of the Mayans after military defeat at the hands of their Toltec enemies, and their settlement in what is now the Southwestern USA. They form an alliance with the Apaches , headed by Yul Byrnner and together they unite to resist the pursuing Toltecs. This is despite the conflict between Brynner and the head of the Mayans , played by George Chakiris (West Side Story) , over the favours of the Apache princess played by Shirley Ann Field . Brynner lends his considerable presence to the role of the Apache chieftain and easily overshadows Chakiris in the acting stakes , while Field is ridiculously miscast . Some attempt is made to give the characters modern resonance by having Chakiris make a stand against human sacrifice but neither characterization nor script is really the issue here. This is movie dominated by action and spectacle . The battle scenes are well staged and the sets are magnificent with some striking location photography , shot in Chichen Itza , Mazatlan and Yucatan.
