A drama written and directed by Lech Majewski and starring Josh Hartnett and John Malkovich, it entwines Navajo lore with a reclusive trillionaire and his would-be biographer, creating a fascinating, mysterious and idiosyncratic vision of America. A complex, multi-level creation, the film contrasts abundance and poverty through three separate storylines, featuring a middle-class writer (Hartnett), an eccentric trillionaire (Malkovich), and a struggling Navajo community. Post-divorce, copywriter John Ecas undertakes the biography of the richest man on earth, who is dead-set on mining scared lands for uranium. When modern advance runs afoul of long-dormant guardians from ancient legend, even the most unimaginable wealth may soon meet it's match.

are expecting a select type of 'progression' in Drama films like this
this film is artistically done, artistically narrated. it's going to lapse from
the typical flow of mainstream dramatic works
a testament to the very rich being involved in very impoverished entities and lifestyles
a profound theme on the bond mankind has to its hobbies and pleasures
- a bond of great connection and passion
the lead roles end up being developed by the end,
there's an underestimated soundtrack, lacking in quantity
and sometimes underplayed, but it works nicely...
some of the 'shots' with the videography and photography effects,
and even raw natural visual input, are magnificent as well
a sad but harrowing tale of the native population scattered thru-out
the continental states of 'north' america and their struggles to Claim
- does great work at combining the 'new age' new-money titans,
- even the creative and media-based titans of modern industry
casting well done in the supporting roles
especially from some of the native actors
it's funny.. still to this day- form personal experience-
interesting how even the natives of the reservations in america
i've known refer to themselves and their peers as 'indian' more often than not...
i really appreciate some of Hartnett's recent works in the filming industry,
his acting has not gone sour nor too 'pop'...
John- more often than not- is a great addition to his
'demographic', and authority and power in this film
worth a watch when in the need for right-brained inspirations...
The cinematography was amazing, particularly the nature scenes. Writing/story/dialog... not at all amazing. I could cite examples, but they might spoil some aspects of the film for you if you do rent/buy it so I won't.
It seems to me that the main creative team, probably primarily the Director, was trying to create something akin to one of Stanley Kubrick's "stranger" films. I point to the fact that Keir Dullea (from "2001: A Space Odyssey") played a semi-key role in this film as a minor nod in that direction. This film is nothing like Kubrick _unless_ you've watched a Kubrick film and left confused. VotG has confusion in spades with hot fudge on top.
I wanted to like it, I tried to like it. I didn't like it. Now if I can only convince my wife to not divorce me for making her watch it with me, life will be grand.
if you DNGI, you will feel let down, like you spent a few hours for an anti-climatic ending, like there was some sort of meaning that was there but was not blunt enough to stir your thoughts; well, that is what it is like to watch most foreign films.
view at your own risk, but this was actually a pretty good film.

this one is on that level. but a second viewing will change that for sure.
bottom line it’s all about the rich and Climate Change who don’t want to know because of their wealth.
the money should stay with me and me alone. pollution is just second rate I guess.
movies like these is what needed right now, not that Hollywood act 3 structure of regurgitated stories lines.
that gets us mad then we complain it’s no good over an over. if you don’t read between the lines. you’re lost.
The Message to the World Gets Lost Eh.
