Excellent!
I kept waiting for the production of a white dove at the end. Would have made it a bit better in my opinion.
Thanks Zombie for sharing.

Well, I like McBride, but if your opening act is one of the most brilliant pieces of film ever conceived, you better be able to follow it.

Frankly, IMO, lousy conception, tons of missed opportunities, so-so execution. Imagine, a floating balloon. Yawn. See what Chaplin did with that same idea in the same movie:

Maybe there's something there worth working on, but I don't think that was ready for prime time.

The finale of all flags doesn't quite follow.
If he was going for a whole one world thing, then symbols of the imaginary lines which divide us, kinda flies in the face of the idea.


"You develop an instant global consciousness, a people orientation, an intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do something about it. From out there on the moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, 'Look at that, you son of a !@#$%.'
— Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 astronaut, People magazine, 8 April 1974.
It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

"You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one."

I won't forget you Robert.

I had a ray of hope too, and then he did nothing with it, afraid to commit to a point of view.
