Allegory Of Pandorum

Post by Devilmayhem666 » Sun Sep 11, 2011 8:48 pm

A thesis of mine on the film.

I think you spent longer thinking about Pandorum than the film-makers did.

So what you're implying is that you believe that this film alludes nothing despite the fact that the film-makers themselves stating to be an allegory (I even posted a link to it)? If so care to state your reasons for believing in such a notion?

EDIT: I guess actually you don't have any proper reasoning for that statement.

The intention of the film makers isn't really the point, it is how the film is perceived - as it has been in a specific way here.

Case in point: as a horror film Halloween is very reactionary, however, this was not John Carpenter's intention. He just wanted to make a scary film but also tapped into something else at the time. Stating the fact that the film isn't reactionary because he didn't intend it to be is to completely miss the point.

Good work Devilmayhem

Thank you. But the filmmaker's intend here was not only to be a scary movie but to also rise questions about humanity (dvd bonus content).

EDIT: The director also has a religious background.
