Pause and play... pause and play. I couldn't resist while watching the trailer for "Happening" by M. Night.
If you pause in the very beginning, look on the blackboard and there the old Einstein statement pops up:
"If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more
plants, no more animals, no more man."
I know there's gonna be made gallons of soup of M. Nights movie, and I somehow feel that he's just doing what every smart business man would do...
talk about what is happening here and now.
Below the Einstein statement is a R. Frost poem:
On glossy wires artistically bent,
He draws himself up to his full extent.
His natty wings with self-assurance perk.
His stinging quarters menacingly work.
Poor egotist, he has no way of knowing
But he's as good as anybody going.
An ironic poem that depicts the fall of the proud.
There is no doubt in what M. Night wants to say here and while it may only be an artists anger towards an establishment that has failed the small man,
the relations between current events and his choice of strong words both in subtle and direct comments are nice enough to build more conspiracy on...
Also note that from the year 2007 we have - 4 years left. So we will see the end of 2011 and then, well, either we have bees again or... I don't
I'm pretty sure there's more to this than just bees dying... both in that movie and in real life.
On a side note... my father inlaws, previously thriving, bee colony died out last year too...
