escape 2000 as political analogy
« on: December 11, 2008, 06:12:30 PM »
I mentioned this over at the religious thread, but I thought I'd go into a little bit of detail here. Does anybody else think that Escape 2000 is an analogy for the israel-Palestine conflict? A modern capitalist nation against a society of tribal gangs, trading brutalities against each other.
that's just how we ride.

So if is an analogy for the conflict, would the the conflict be one for a crappy movie?

Actually, I think it is just a crappy Italian remake of The Warriors crossed with Fort Apache the Bronx

The message is anti-corp, if anything.  Clearly the producers and directors deserve a mandatory, punitive dopple as anteaters.

Whoaaaaaa! Huge slam on anteaters out of nowhere!

I think Escape 2000 was tainted with the weirdo revolutionary socialist ideology of post-70's Italia. The Red Brigades got mopped up, so the best they could do is make bad movies about overthrowing the capitalists.
