“Didnt Mel Gibsons Apocalypto deal with some of this on film?”
Wasn’t that the movie that had subtitles in English? I didn’t see it, but I don’t do subtitles. If I have to read, I’ll read a book! A movie is a visual experience, and subtitles distract completely from the cinematography. I much prefer dubbing, even poor dubbing, then being forced to take my eyes from the film to read subtitles! I watched “Das Boot” in both versions, and vastly preferred the dubbed version.
Actually IIRC there wasn’t ANY dialog other than grunting, huffing, and screaming in pain. Purely visual.
