The world right now reminds me so much of Alex Proyas' masterpiece "Dark City" (based on Rene' Clair's "The Crazy Ray"). While we sleep, truth and belief is being altered against our will to keep us in a perpetual state of ignorance about reality. Reality is whatever the elite choose for it to be each and ever day...the one slip in the plan comes when somebody wakes up, the cycle is broken and truth begins to rear it's ugly head.
Catching up on the new O.J. circus last night, cut away to commercial...opening Friday in theaters everywhere "In the Shadow of the Moon". This is a critically kiss-assed documentary of the Apollo Missions to the Moon as told by the men who were there. A popular saying is "location, location, location"...it's more like "timing, timing, timing". The Hollywood propaganda machine steps in to remind everybody that WE REALLY DID GO TO THE MOON.
The gears, the smoke, the mirrors...The Great and Powerful Oz behind the curtain or The Strangers changing memories and the landscape while the planet sleeps, it doesn't matter which story you're into. The older generations, the power elite seem obsessed with The Oz story...Born in '69, I feel I have lived in both worlds...The world of "Dark City" seems to be more my home...living in it, wide awake like Murdoch.
"Wicked Witch of the West: Ahhahahaha...Well! Ring around the rosy a pocket full of -- spears. Thought you'd be pretty foxy, didn't ya? Well, the last to go will see the first three go before her. Hahaha. And her mangy little dog, too."The thing to remember about both tales is that in the end WATER is the one element that can't be controlled (is feared by the controllers), and destroys the oppressor. Aquarius the water-bearer is rising from the oceans of this planet to wash away the sins of our fathers, and our father's fathers...to uncover the centuries of filth that covers all the lands of the earth so that we may see clearly. Their time, like the Wicked Witch of the West, and The Strangers is drawing to a close. It is time for them to escape or drown.
Alex Proyas born Sept. 23rd in Egypt, moved to OZ (Australia) at the age of 3. His body of work is quite interesting, and he is currently in negotiations to direct "The Silver Surfer".
