    Troy: The Lack of Divine Existence in Film

    While Ancient Greek tragedies loved to have divine characters speaking on the stage, modern movies seem to hesitate a lot. In the movie Troy (directed by Wolfgang Petersen and written by David Benioff,) no deity appears on the battlefield despite the exciting descriptions of their fight in Homer’s epic. Similar things happen in other movies based on mythology. For instance, Aphrodite never appears in the Argonaut movies, although she is quite important in the epic.
    What might be the reason for this phenomenon?

      Great analysis of Iago! I agree with your argument about how Iago always justifies himself afterwards.

      Iago - The Perfect Villain

      Dennis starts his story as a dead person, then a full-time police officer, and end up as a high school student. It is interesting to see how he grows in an almost “opposite” way to most people. From death to job to school.

      Agree. The tip of Biro feels rather slippery. Pencil is the most comfortable writing tool for me.

      Is the Pen Mightier Than the Keyboard?
