backtrack; Apocalypto (2006)


One indomitable, down-to-earth freedom-seeker is pitted against an evil and decaying »civilization« – guess the winner! Ominous, moody, heavily biased depiction of the doomed Mayan kingdom.

Kudos to controversial writer/director/producer Mel Gibson for squeezing an incredible amount of intensity out of the extremely linear and simplistic plot. Maybe in my book of running.
