I saw Apocalypto last night. It was very good, actually. All the characters spoke in a Mayan dialect that is supposedly accurate to the time period. What I liked best is that even though it was a big Hollywood production with a massive budget, dealing with a giant topic–the downfall of the Mayan empire–it never let go of basic human values, like family, friends, love and fear. It was told from a very small-scale perspective, and that is what made it watchable. The characters couldn’t be more different from us in appearance, with their body mutilations and mods, language, clothing, culture, etc., but it was still easy to identify with them and what they were experiencing. I would recommend this film.
