I was wondering if anyone might have suggestions for loosely based
metaphors...Films which derive from classics and myths, mostly Ancient
Greek traditions but also Asian and Irish.
 
 
For example:
 
Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai:  Homer's Illiad
 
Peter Fonda's Easy Rider:  Homer's Odyssey
 
Antonia's Line:  The Lyrics of Sappho
 
Werner Herzog's Aguirre:  The Wrath of God:  Sophocles' Ajax
 
Truffaut's Jules et Jim:  Sophocle's Trachinians
 
Neil Jordan's Crying Game:  Bacchae
 
Sleepers:  Sophocles' Antigone/ Euripides' Medea
 
Ingmar Bergman's The Seventh Seal:  Bible:  Revelations
