The Book of Eli – A Journey of Faith

I believe every film has a phrase, a key sequence to includes the essence and the message of an entire movie. The core of “The Book of Eli” I found in this phrase, uttered by the character played by Denzel Washington, shortly before concluding his journey:

What if everything you know is a made-up story?

A giant solar eruption destroys almost all the satellites, causing a global failure to all the electronic devices. Such a failure is proven to have an unexpected impact not only on the daily life on our planet, but it seems to affect the perception of reality itself.

I had to watch this short film several times in order the come close to the feeling that I’m starting to understand it. And that’s a good thing as it’s philosophical take it’s better let to debate. There’s a dark feel to this movie, it’s madness and feeling of uncertainty that have the power to make you doubt everything for a brief moment: what if everything you know is a made-up story? How much can you trust your own eyes?

Aside of it’s clear resemblance to the blockbuster Matrix, I must remark the amazing special effects, also the acting is great as this is just a short film. All these elements seems to have drawn the attention of the major production studios because, according to, Warner Bros has won an auction for the right to create a feature out of the 14-minute short film. Have a great… Well, have a great Sunday!
