      Ioannis Alex M Out of all the adaptations, this is the closest that any movie gets to the heart of what Aldous Huxley was trying to communicate. It doesn't have the razzle and dazzle, but you can feel the heart that was put into the movie by everyone in it. The bare bones message remains clear throughout the movie. "...But if in your heart you would seek only love's peace and love's pleasure, Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love's threshing-floor, Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears... " - Khalil Gibran Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/14/24 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
