'Babylon A.D.' Panned By Its Own Director

2008-08-27

 


French director Mathieu Kassovitz let loose in an interview with


AMCtv.com, describing his new movie Babylon A.D. as "pure violence and


stupidity." While some directors may strive for that, Kassovitz is


"ready to go to war" with Fox because "They made everything difficult


from A to Z." Instead of portraying "geopolitics and how the world is


going to evolve" he found in the source novel, "Babylon Babies" by


Maurice Georges Dantec, Kassovitz blames studio interference for the


film's resemblance to "a bad episode of 24." For what it's worth,


critics agree with Kassovitz—the few who have actually seen the


thing. Fox isn't doing critic screenings of Babylon A.D., a common


practice when studios know they have a stinker on their hands.—Movietimes.com Movie News Bureau
