LOOKING BACK, Cinema's greatest moments...



While bringing in the New Year in Mayan Mexico, how can I not think of this extraordinary film APOCALYPTO (2006) by Mel Gibson that gives cinematic verisimilitude a new meaning… Not only are they speaking ancient Yucatan Mayan!... but seriously, this film takes us hundreds of years back to pre-Columbian Meso-America. Gibson creates true cinema remarkably achieved, transporting us to this ancient world and its collective myth psychology.

In this arresting scene, hero Jaguar Paw (Rudy Younblood) is a myth in the making as he runs from invading Mayan barbarians intent on making sacrifices to their gods out of him and his clan. The head of the invaders -Zero Wolf- and his tribe follow Jaguar Paw on an unrelenting suspenseful chase through the Mexican jungles where he outruns them while incredibly coming face to face with snakes, venomous frogs, a massive waterfall and an irate pursuing female jaguar.

I’ve seen this film a dozen times and it never ceases to amaze me. Jaguar Paw is the hero of the most and always inspires me to get off my butt and take on the world. What a film to begin 2012 with!
