«Планета обезьян» — актуальный фильм. Потому что отражает суть самой актуальной проблемы на сегодняшний день.

Что пришло бы в голову жителям развивающейся, простой индустриальной державы, выживи они в подобном катаклизме?

Правильно. Первым делом — наладить сельскохозяйственное и промышленное производство. Распахать поля, запустить мануфактуры по пошиву свитеров и изготовлению ботинок. Отсортировать библиотеки. Начать делать хотя бы самую необходимую фармацевтику. Перевести, блин, свои джипы на газогенераторы — вокруг лес.

И через десять лет был бы у них уже вполне приличный городок с аграрным уклоном, в котором у каждой многодетной семьи подсобное хозяйство, работает школа, а молодые механики и шахтеры возвращаются по вечерам с работы усталые и чумазые. И была бы у них уже давным-давно налажена радиосвязь с другими островками цивилизации. И всё такое.

Но нет. Пост-индустриальный человек в «Планете обезьян» НИЧЕГО сам не мастерит и не строит. Он СИДИТ и ПРОЕДАЕТ то, что добыл. Предел его цивилизационных амбиций — добыть и использовать ещё что-нибудь. Найти ещё бензина, ещё электростанцию, ещё джинсов. За отсутствием третьего мира — роль поставщика всего этого исполняют заброшенные богатства ушедшей цивилизации.

То есть в понимании современного западного творца — настоящий человек от обезьяны отличается тем, что ему БОЛЬШЕ НУЖНО для выживания. А не тем, что он МОЖЕТ СОЗДАТЬ среду обитания своими руками.

В данной картине обезьяны — это явная метафора условно «не западных» народов. А под такие народы в западном массовом сознании выделено только два стереотипа:

1) Благородные Дикари с копьями, мирно сидящие по своим дубравам и занимающиеся гармонией с природой.
2) Неблагородные Дикари, схватившие автоматы и пытающиеся поработить западных людей.

Этот фильм, как и «Аватар», прямо объявляет врагов пост-индустриального белого человека плохими обезьянами. И заодно — обвиняющая их (то есть нас) в будущей войне.

То есть понятно, что сценарист и режиссёр глобальных политических манифестов в своё кино не закладывали. Но это им и не нужно. Им достаточно быть носителями специфического «пост-индустриального» взгляда на мир, чтоб нам было понятнее, откуда что берётся.

И когда мы сегодня видим, как весь цивилизованный мир убивается по белым людям, разбившимся в «Боинге», и как он обвиняет во всём убиваемых в куда больших количествах «русских дикарей» с Донбасса — это нам кажется, что они лицемерят.

А на самом деле никакого лицемерия нет. Просто погибшие голландцы и британцы для них — люди. А истребляемые наши — это обезьяны с автоматами. Сидящие на ресурсе, важном для удовлетворения потребностей людей.

...Они так видят.

Great work! I especially like the colors of dawn breaking and how you made Caesar's war paint face the focal point of the piece. Wait. I've just noticed the trees and hints of a ruined cityscape in the background. This is the poster the studio's should be using! :D (Big Grin)

Thanks. I think I may have made the cityscape too faint but it sort of crowded the image when I made it more prominent

Yes, I see how that could have turned into a problem. Then again, I like works where you can notice something new every time you look at it. The cityscape and trees were 'there' just enough to make an impression.

I can almost see the Hollywood boardroom meeting between studio bosses now...

:icongo-on-plz: Yes. I think there needs to be an industry established benchmark on the number of "of the"'s a title can have before it becomes preposterously over-cumbersome for the audience. 

:iconnaileditplz: 2

haha! Yeah it is a bit excessive, but I guess they have the monopoly on using 'of the' twice in a film title now
