I’ve been thinking a lot about myths lately.


The other day, I happened upon this article, which claims that American films (and TV shows, etc.) find inspiration in Greek mythology in times of great social turbulence.  If this is true, I think we can expect to see several million remakes of the Odyssey next year.  Maybe more.
