Read this. You can’t just look with your eyes, you need to look with your mind.
You can’t see with your mind if what you first see with your eyes makes no sense. But this is a very interesting and well-thought-out review. I admit, I couldn’t get past the plot holes and poor characterizations to analyze the themes behind Prometheus, so my review was devoid of any discussion of deeper meaning.
At the time of viewing, and moreso after reading this article, I acknowledge that there were interesting themes running throughout Prometheus, especially regarding the mythical titan Prometheus, such as self-sacrifice and humanity’s fear of death.
However, if Scott and Lindelof really intended that the black goo was responding to humanity’s “psychic atmosphere” and if proper interpretation of the film requires us to realize that Jesus Christ was actually Space Jockey Jesus and his crucifixion is what first angered our heretofore-benevolent creators, then Prometheus missed its mark far more than I first thought.
