Yes, I read that the average Americans did not value the film so much so it probably was replaced fast by some new Vampire film or something. Here it just started and I think it has the potential to draw in a lot of people. I have not seen many movies twice or more, but this one may be one of them. In part admittedly because I may want to see the dubbed version to at least have some reasonable chance to understand the future-english - It leaves more questions open than it answers, so I wonder if it makes sense to also read the book - Empty Glass - are some of the unclear connections more clear in the book? But then again - I think I just missed so many of them because so much was happening, that I may benefit from a second viewing in getting more clues.
One thing for example I was wondering about was, why Somni was in images on the walls and statues after the fall. Was it because she did incite a revolution? Was it just because she looked like all the other fabricants and these images were just the company logo, which I think is most likely - but then again why do people remember her as a "goddess" - how did that come to be. This movie certianly makes you look for the clues and that way they managed to pull off a movie that people want to go in again and again to find more clues and details and connections. I think that is brilliant

"Humans are storytellers. These stories then can become our reality. Only when we loose ourselves in the stories they have the power to control us. Our culture got lost in the wrong story, a story of death and defeat, of opression and control, of separation and competition. We need a new story!"
