Movie N° 193: 300 – Z. Snyder 2007 USA

Zack Snyder made a film of Frank Miller´s Graphic Novel and gave this specific genre that certain something. It goes without saying that this movie does not match to everybody´s taste. 

Everything is subordinated to the visual strength, the created visual spectacles are extremely tight. This happens primarily through the figure drawing: extreme, overrated warriors with muscles of steel. But in further steps Snyder forms the bodies, and the bodies of their enemies as well, into battlefields taking up the whole space. 

We choose this movie with its sets because of the visual strength to convert illustrations to an idealized cinematic situation.
