Apocalypto (Mel Gibson) 2006 **** 5/8/2017

A frenetic raid, a vicious march, a wild chase back.  All through this the most remarkable representation of a wildly alien people illustrates how similar they are.  Jaguar Paw (Rudy Youngblood) is the survivor, and his wife and child hide in a hole during the raid.  He races back after being saved from sacrifice on the top of the infamous Mayan steps by an eclipse, and is pursued by ten killers.  The culmination of it all is escape, and reunion…for Jaguar Paw, because he only gets away because of the arrival of big ships with white sails.  And so they walk deep into the woods, safe for the moment.
