The Entrapment to Our Escape
Beautiful movie! Great imagination and way of presenting common issues. As the main character gets trapped in an environment that mimics his home town it does not quite replace it. This speaks to we as a society or individuals offer others a comfort area or object in order for others to feel at home. However, we miss the most important things which are the connections they have to home not home itself. The alien that collects other creatures and provides them an environment which mimics their hometown may genuinely be trying to help these creatures be happy as they can do as they please in their restricted area. However, he does not see that solitude is not for everyone and that objects (such as a house) is not as important as the relationships they have and their day to day experiences. Many times we too wish to just be abducted by Aliens if only for a moment to not live in such a chaotic world or have to face our fears. However, it is not until we realize that our world has more to offer than our presenting problems that we begin to value it. I watched it as child and for several years still remains a great movie. Perhaps now the special effects may not be as powerful but if you allow yourself to see the movie for what it is and perhaps attempt to see it through a child's eye, or through someone who is eager to please others, someone, who wants to get away, or someone who began their journey with something in mind and lost their purpose on the way, you may greatly enjoy the film.
