I heard joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he's depressed. Life seems harsh, and cruel. Says he feels all alone in threatening world. Doctor says: "Treatment is simple. The great clown - Pagliacci - is in town. Go see him. That should pick you up." Man bursts into tears. "But doctor..." he says "I am Pagliacci." Good joke. Everybody laugh. Roll on snare drum. Curtains. #rorschach #watchmen #alanmoore #fanart #kibooki
WHAT-IS: "Rorschach's mask (which he refers to as his "face") consisted of a specialized fabric, one that was actually two layers of fabric with viscous black and white fluids trapped between them. The fluids remained in constant motion, being affected by heat and pressure, however, the black and white colors never combined to form gray. The patterns formed by the fluids also maintained a consistent symmetrical pattern down the mid-line of whatever shape the fabric had been formed into." (Read more here}.
Still a movie I'd love to re-watch and own, for many of the reasons mentioned in this video above! Sure I can (sort of) understand the venom some folks seem to have for Zack Snyder's work, and even agree with some of them, but it doesn't mean I'd not enjoy his films, especially THIS project. As much as I abhor certain Michael Bay visual tactics, I too enjoy and love his cinematic storytelling style (especially in "older" films such as "The Rock" and "Armageddon").
It is not fair to compare Bay to Snyder, but unfortunately both filmmakers have been put on the "shelf of hate" for some folks ...but fortunately NOT on mine, so I can serendipitously enjoy their movies, and choose to dislike them if I wanted to, innit?
Damn but do I still want to won the WATCHMEN DVD tho...!
