When they are removing the rails from the John Galt line, the text on the screen says it is March 31. Nowhere in Colorado would be so green in March nor would any deciduous trees be completely leafed out as the ones in this scene are. In fact, it will be at least another month or two until the leaf buds even begin to swell before producing leaves. See more »
In the theatrical release, when John Galt is revealed at the end of the film, his face is fully lit and visible. In the DVD and Netflix release, his face has been darkened and obscured. See more »
While I have never read the book, the way this movie is filmed and the lack of big named stars really took me in. This is a wonderfully produced movie with some incredibly deep overtones of the situation that the US is currently potentially facing.
The acting is excellent and the dark feel and sense of hopelessness really gets inside of you as I realize this is a possible future as being orchestrated by the powers that be. Art imitates life so to speak and being someone who deeply distrusts the main stream media, seeing it as the 100% propaganda that it is and has researched a lot into the darker truths about those running our country, its almost as if Ayn Rand was seeing the way the power structure of the world was setting up the world to achieve its goals of domination and subservience of the US population.
Fear is rampant in this moment and the government uses that fear to take even further control from the people. This movie should hit home and make us take stock of what we have and wake up to what the military industrial complex, bankers and power elite have in store for those of us that continue to stand still with our head buried in the sand while all of our liberties are taken by us one by one.
