Well, it’s definitely anti-Mayan-civ. The contrast between the hunter gatherers and the city folks was deliberate, and the protagonist is a hunter gatherer that you want to see escape the city and get back to his forest. As for whether it’s anti-our-civ or not–I wonder if Gibson or his Icon company even have a clue that our history developed through similar circumstances.

It’s the greatest movie evar, EVAR. Summary: “An examination of death from an animist perspective, with kick-ass special effects and half-naked Hugh Jackman.” And it’s directed by Darren Aronofsky (Pi, Requiem for a Dream). GO SEE IT, DAMMIT!!![/quote]
What was that, Giuli? I couldn’t quite make out what you were saying. Oh, The Fountain. Gotcha.
