The Ninth Gate (1999)
This is an enjoyable movie. Roman P. is a great director. Right up there with Martin S. This movie, if you believe it, is about getting an equal footing with God through Lucifer. Lucifer is the father of all lies. Don't believe in the point of the movie.
Of all the talented directors Roman P. is the only one who is obsessed with horror and specifically with the devil. Why ? Look at Rosemary's Baby, The Fearless Vampire Killers, etc. The story line is fascinating, to be on a level with God while on earth. No one in the history of man has Lucifer ever giving anything to us except horror. Lucifer, once God's best friend, tempted by Bilal to realize himself more, turn out to be God's great enemy. Hmmmm, Jesus of Nazareth choose 12 close friends to be his apostles. Three of them choose to deny Him. One choose to betray Him. Judas the betrayer, Peter denied knowing Him, and Thomas who choose to see so that he can believe.
