The human search for creation is perhaps the first and most notable coping mechanism for that primal trauma: the subconscious realisation that there is no meaning. Having realised this, one can separate humanity into two kinds, the religious zealots who arbitrarily place a point of origin in that which they value most, and the so called "enlightened" who take it upon themselves to become that point of origin and the masters of their own creation.

Probably one of the worst films ever made in every regard, but lets focus on how this is a fun movie about how all these "middle easterns" (homogenising culture much?) are wrong for wanting to revolt against their oppressors because their founding myth is based on a lie.
