I’ve watched some strange films in my lifetime, some have held my attention and others haven’t made it past the first chapter.
The future of Valley of the Gods is yet to be determined. My friends at Well Go USA acquired the North American rights to the Lech Majewski film.
The surrealist drama stars Josh Hartnett (Black Hawk Down, Lucky Number Slevin) and John Malkovich (Being John Malkovich, Death of a Salesman).
The story contrasts opposing social extremes — namely abundance and poverty – through three separate storylines. The story follows a middle-class writer, an eccentric trillionaire and members of a struggling nearby Navajo community. After a difficult divorce, copywriter John Ecas (Harnett) takes on the biography of the richest man on earth (John Malkovich), who is both his boss and the man behind a plan to mine sacred Navajo lands for uranium.
The cinematography will definitely hold your attention. I’m sure it would look much better on the big screen. The Valley of the Gods is a scenic sandstone valley near Mexican Hat in San Juan County, southeastern Utah, United States. Obviously, it’s beautiful.
This has been the background for countless Westerns and even Doctor Who, but if you’re looking for an understandable plot — good luck.
