Bram’s weekly recommendation: Planet of the Apes (1968)

planet of the apes

My first of the weekly recommendations is The Planet Of The Apes.  It has a no holds barred approach to it’s criticism of human ignorance.  I struggle to think of production of this scale that has dared to be so stark in highlighting our arrogance as a race.  It’s satirical but never loses it’s drive.

It’s ending stands as one of the most iconic in the history of cinemas, with the quote ‘you maniacs!’ living in the memory of film fans everywhere.

Charlton Heston also impresses with an incredible lead performance.
