The Island Of Doctor Moreau

Post by Mai »

Disclaimer: The book is brilliant, everyone should read it first.

As for the movie.. There's always been something about it that screams HEI IM A SATIRE.


Wrong? Right? Am i right?
I felt like a race horse in a world without racetracks or a champion college footballer suddenly confronted by Wall Street and a business suit, his days of glory shrunk to a little gold cup on his mantel with a date engraved on it like a tombstone.

Yes, but I do not know how or why not, a feeling of infinite peace and protection of the owners of the brilliant sky. There is, I believe, is a great and eternal laws of matter, and every day cares and sins and sorrows of men, which is more than animal within us must find comfort and hope.
