Luc Besson | Lucy


Lucy is very interesting. It's punctuated with quack science like Darwin's Origin of the species (partially usable but just one chapter) and gravity (bring me a graviton). Other than that it seems to drop a lot of occult knowledge such as infinity being the only reference/narrative framework and the declaration "we never die", during the Paris chase scene.

Nice to see Old Boy's Choi Min-Sik in it and Syriana's Amr Waked.

It's got lots of holes in it to cover American Studio Execs who don't have much experience of the world but Scarlett Johansson is terrific. Such a shame she supports the Anti Semitic occupation of Palestine.

I have a Luc Besson story in Japan to share if anyone asks me one to one.
