Apocalypto: 6 Days To Go!

Apocalypto is only 6 days away! We'll be providing a daily round-up of the latest news, links, and multimedia content over this next week (so keep the email tips coming!). Here is the first installment:

  • Audio clips of the Apocalypto score:

"A" writes:

"Apocalypto audio clips of James Horner's score can be found here:

Note that the tracklistings on these pages show the tracks in alphabetical order, not in the correct cd order."

  • Displeasure at Roger Friedman's Apocalypto review over at Fox News

Several readers have said they are unhappy with Roger Friedman's Apocalypto review, calling it "disgraceful" and "full of biased journalism."

Antonius Bloch sent in these comments by Fox News blogger Father Morris:

One last note before signing off - my reference to "The Passion" reminded me of a movie review I read earlier today by Roger Friedman of Gibson's new film "Apocalypto." Roger is a fellow contributor to In the spirit of respectful disagreement, I submit that his article is way off the mark. Roger writes:

"Apocalypto" surpasses "The Passion" in every way as a movie about pain, flagellation, and wounding. The grotesqueries are almost numbing, and at some point, they become laughable. But all the while, you're thinking, what's the point here? If "Apocalypto" was supposed to be about that transitional civilization, where is it? After two hours and several minutes of squirming and covering eyes, you start to think that "Apocalypto" exists just to show violence for itself. The point is lost."

Several weeks ago, I posted my impressions of "Apocalypto" after seeing a rough cut in a private showing in Los Angeles. Unless Gibson decided to add scenes or modify significantly the story line, I think Roger overreacted.

The film is not for children, and contains several scenes that, for my sensibilities, were over the top. But as a whole, I found "Apocalypto" to be riveting entertainment and a valuable contribution of social, historic, and moral commentary.

You decide.

  • Apocalypto running time actually longer than previously circulated?

AW Reader Michael says:

"You wrote some days ago that the film is about two hours long, and to be frank, that's what I heard too after it was screened for the first time in Austin back then. With reviews of the supposedly final cut slowly coming in ... the running time now seems to clock in at a healthy 137 mins. Has the film - that was supposed to get a little trimmed - actually got longer in the process? Hmm..."

  • Very favorable early reviews of Apocalypto:

Reuters reports:

Mel Gibson's new movie "Apocalypto" drew several good early reviews on Friday from critics who cautioned the thriller set against the end of an ancient Mayan civilization is also extremely violent.

"Blood-and-guts action audiences should eat this up," said show business newspaper Daily Variety.

"Despite the subject's inherent spectacle, conflict and societal interest, Central America's pre-Columbian history has scarcely been touched by filmmakers," writes Variety critic Todd McCarthy, who also called the film "remarkable."

Another veteran critic, Maxim magazine's Pete Hammond, said he was "blown away by the filmmaking."[Read the rest of the article.]

Very encouraging news!
