Exodus: Gods and Kings


The grimdark realistic remake of Prince of Egypt that everyone was pinning for.

Since it treats Moses as Batman and the Pharaoh as Lex Luthor, it is virtually identical to any modern run-of-the-mill superhero effect-driven extravaganza.

In the quest for “realism”, it excises all religious symbolism from the story. Ironically, a film adapting a biblical story has less religious symbols than films for kids that deal with Norse gods.

Gods of Egypt was infinitely better and had some colours other than brown and dark blue.

The visual effects are cool, but not as the most interesting images on the screen. I want some more (kosher) lamb with these potatoes.

This is my place for ramblings about sequences of images that exploit the human visual limitation know as persistence of vision.
