quietearth [Celluloid 10.15.08] post apocalyptic movie news scifi



I've written about Freedom Deep in the past and I have to say, the original cut of this is one of my top 100 favorite films of all time. That's not to say this new final directors version isn't good, but it's different in the way it has some explanation for the storyline whereas the original didn't. The initial film wasn't completed, and the distributor released it as such, so director Aaron Stevenson and crew have been waiting years to finish this up, and finally the completed version will be released soon.

"It's the story of Liam which alternates from when he was a child to when he's an adult. As a child, he is misunderstood, but he dreams and he writes. As an adult after some apocalypse, he has completed a new Bible of sorts which must be delivered to the people."

The music is performed by Goya's Child and is nothing short of fantastic. Seriously, I've seen both the original and the new cuts and I HIGHLY recommend this film. We'll let you know when it's available. Trailer after the break.

It's virtually unknown for good reason: it fucking sucks. Seriously, this post is some kind of a joke, right? The only thing worse than the movie itself is the soundtrack. I refuse to believe that even someone with the worst taste in the world could actually enjoy that garbage.

found this film in a bargain bin at the local cash converters and bought it to check it out. it is confusing, the images are great the music is incredible like some tribal trippy kind of music with incredible drums and percussion and groovy and funk ridden bass....

Just saw a copy of the new hollywood film book of eli, which is tragically a rip off and copy of the freedom deep film, and the film industry says its against copyright and infringement (Obviously its ok for them to do it) but not for anyone else, and shame on the australian film comission for failing to protect the rights of australian independent film makers......
