That’s right good ol’ Mel wants to make another film about Jews. Who would be better to tell this story than the king of gore himself. Besides, being a devout Catholic and having not rejected the 3 books of Maccabees in the Apocrypha I am sure he has the story down. It is like brave heart meets 300 except better because… well we’ll just have to wait and see.
Many people don’t actually know the story of Hanukkah or how to spell it for that matter, but that is debatable. If you went to school in any place in America with a larger Jewish population, you might know a little about lighting candles or something about a Hebrew Hammer, having to do with some ambiguous miracle about oil or something? Well you almost know the whole story!
I was taught in school for kids who don’t film good and want to film better, to show don’t tell, so that is what I will do. Watch this cartoon I made last year if you want to know more about the festival of lights.
