    Why would it be? It seems to me people are always trying to claim some work of fiction as "unfilmable": Be it Silmarillion, parts from the Bible, or books like House of Leaves. Just drag it all down into the prosaic world of explicitness and film it. The only things that are unfilmable are cheap devices like H. P. Lovecraft or Stanislaw Lem employed when they "described" something with bullshit like "it can't be described in words".

      Hmm good post this guy gets it. If done tastefully a literal approach would probably be cool

      No, Lynch would add his own weird twist to it which is not what you want here. You need a certain, you know, religious reverence with this material (while being careful not to veer into pious kitsch), the mood should be close to an ancient middle eastern austerity, not highlighting the sublime sights with generic solemn music nor the horrible sights with too-obvious somber music, the material is extravagant enough in itself and should mostly speak for itself. You need restraint, you need someone steeped in an ancestral and preferably eastern strand of Christendom, so I guess you need someone like Tarkovski

    it depends on how you interpret it. kirk cameron was able to make movies about the events semi realistically, but if you take the literal interpretation where there’s lions with dragon bodies wearing crowns and shit it’s harder.

    Didn't they have that book series that was adapted into a Nick Cage movie? I think it's called "The Left Behind" or something like that.

    Basically you would need someone who is capable of doing tasteful avant-garde while retaining a mood that is reverent towards the material and steeped in a sacramental religious sensibility. Soundtrack should be something like Ligeti or Messiaen. Come to think of it Lynch's use of Penderecki in the most abstract episode of Return comes to mind. This can be done basically but it would require some serious talent. You know the scene in Scorcese's silence where Jesus speaks? And it's kind of uncanny, feels almost sacrilegous? That's what you want. Basically don't let a Southern Baptist direct it

    Ridley Scott would make it all tacky and bombastic. Scorsese would make a good movie out of it probably. Or how about Robert Eggers, is that a cringe suggestion? I think he has the right sensibility for it.

    Malick however would go for the facile sublime. You're all too drunk and have too many coomer tabs open to care about my opinions here but that's okay.

    >>the world economic forum has a global digital currency ready to go.
    >>at least one superpower has talked about blotting out the sun a "to fight climate change".
    is being forsaken internationally (earned or not) and surrounded by enemies

    if they film it'll be a documentary - Hopefully by Thoroux and I hope they play it in whatever UN prison camp in put in.

    id say probably, only because chronologically it's actually a pretty large span of time. like a decade or so? a lot of the parts are fairly threadbare narratively speaking too. overall the christian eschaton is just not that exciting

    Part of the issue is conveying tone. The four angels around the throne, the gospel writers, are beautiful and glorious for John to behold, but are described in ways that sound horrifying on paper. So how should you portray them? The destruction and violence is easy, but the heavenly stuff is hard.
