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
