Apocalypto is absurdly epic.
Apocalypto is a product of staggering devotion.
It is a work of singular vision that is utterly untarnished by any of today's film precepts.
The fact that this flick was made in today's movie machine is inconceivable. Apocalypto is so unrelenting and unwilling to make concessions for the average viewer that 99% of the people on the planet will watch this film and have no idea that it is probably one of the best movies to beat it's way out of the 2000s.
But it is. It really is.
Mel Gibson: a racist, a drunk and an genuinely incredible film maker.
We love this fucking guy.
