The Day the Earth Stood Still’s religious and philosophical dimensions
“The Day the Earth Stood Still” is an extremely well-written and executed film that draws heavily on religious symbolism. The film captures the mood of our nation at the time, while simultaneously offering a different perspective on the Cold War. The story is compelling, and the performances are superb.
When “The Day the Earth Stood Still” first came out, it was widely thought that extraterrestrial civilizations were unlikely, but we now know otherwise. Today, modern cosmology and astronomy have made it possible, if not probable.
Although the film was made in 1951, it remains relevant today, as Cold War tensions and fears of extraterrestrial visitations continue to haunt humankind. Despite its cult status, “Day the Earth Stood Still” still holds up today. Unlike its contemporaries, it continues to speak to us about the implications of the future.
Its Cold War setting
Miracles Still Happen is a 1974 Italian movie about a girl who survives a plane crash in the Peruvian rainforest. The film stars Juliane Diller and Lock Martin. In the movie, she is saved by a giant robot called Gort. The movie also includes the controversial film “The Day the Earth Stood Still.”
Its Cold War themes
The film opens with a breathlessly beautiful prologue, set during the 1951 Giants-Dodgers pennant race. Written with DeLillo’s trademark “super omniscience,” the prologue follows young Cotter Martin as he soars over radio waves and slides in on a fast ball. The film then follows the story of J. Edgar Hoover and the Soviet Union, which have both a hand in the crash of LANSA Flight 508 and a role in the cover up of that crash.
