The head of the spider .. a dystopia of blind feelings of obedience | art

Over the years of recent human history, there has been a demonization in literature and film of doctors trying to test and test new medicines and treatments on humans. The idea itself is greeted with strong disapproval by all, except for a few doctors who find immortality in the fulfillment of their imaginary prophecies, whether it is good for others or evil that exploits their existence in all possible ways.

There is a beginning that establishes the idea that has achieved the success of everyone who rewrites it or photographs it, and it was Dr. Frankenstein. Frankenstein is a novel by the British author Mary Shelley published in 1818, about Victor Frankenstein of the Frankenstein family, one of the richest families at the time.

Frankenstein wants to discover the life elixir that keeps him and his friend Henry and his friends Elizabeth and Justin alive forever, so he tries to create a new human being, and isolates himself for this human invention that his human feeling, and the feeling will improve of all in his imagination.

From “Dr. Frankenstein” to the more recent movie “Spiderhead”, the public has formed an awareness against this demonization that does not take into account the space of forced and inevitable experimentation to create therapies that contribute to human progress in general , as opposed to after all the most evil experiences. And drama of course.

In the movie “The Spider’s Head” we look at a doctor who performs experiments on prisoners, in the quest to produce drugs that can pack human feelings and release human emotions automatically, where the individual after taking this drug he can practice his utter folly without feeling ashamed, and perhaps let him obey blind obedience to all that he is commanded.

How is this possible? The first step is to give an illusion space of freedom to people who think they are in a state of choice, while accepting their existence as guinea pigs is easier for them than an ugly prison.

Swindler Dr. Abnesty, not very well played by Chris Hemsworth, seeks the help of prisoners and convinces them that he will test them with drugs that can purify emotions, in order to gain the greatest happiness and acceptance. The topic is generally presented to convicts as an opportunity to volunteer for medical trials to shorten their sentences.

The demonic idea presented by the film appears in a new drug that is capable of generating feelings of love and then questioning the reality of emotions, so that this man is unable to express the nature of his feelings of love. ground down, and therefore he can accept everything blindly possible, no matter how ugly he is when he is under the influence of that nihilism.

The film’s symbolism extends to social themes that transcend the demonization of the doctor, such as contemporary individual freedom that is probably lacking in the extreme, and the total control of the digital that tries to capture everything that hinders its path.

As for the political dimension that some may think of the idea of ​​producing blind obedience that causes the masses to accept the evils presented to them, this is a premature conception of the film, and it may mean nothing to its producers. what of the science fiction field more than their interest in the ideological discourse that can be conducted by controlling prisoners and viewing them as guinea pigs.

As for the society, politics, and general culture that all of this helped contain, it comes from a man who is fearful of his brother, who gives every day a sign of love to Satan for control that partially reassures him in a scary world.

The camera crosses with the evil doctor who believes in his idea, which he considers to change the world, while filling his eyes with horror and emptiness, which he suppresses every time with the “elixir of life” drugs that he uses every time deceived immediate happiness. .

Perhaps the film’s most original question comes from the doctor, not from the prisoners who pay the price for their mistakes, and his philosophy becomes: Is the sense of control worth all the destruction? Does life really go on without the feeling of love that everything creates afterwards?

An emerging director is not stopped by anything

Many people interested in the film industry around the world have wondered about the director Joseph Kaczynski, who at the beginning of this year presented two of the best films of the year, the first of which was “Top Gun” and then “Spider’s Head” .

And the two films both drew their events from journalistic writings that monitored the essence of the story that exploited the cinema to shed more light on, and they also confronted areas of anxiety, tension and attraction between the producers over property rights. of ideas written years ago and the stories visually transformed, and both made the most of the potential of actor Mills Teller and his great anticipated talent. Outside the border.

This director has made great progress since he was on the scene with the movie “Troy”, which earned millions of dollars in movie theaters around the world and drew attention to him, and always with him is the ingenious director of photography Cladio Miranda.

The director presents his distinctive visual perception through stories that are closely related to literature and journalism, and it seems that he has largely succeeded in adding a visual touch that every spectator finds. Perhaps at this point it can be emphasized the need for literature as well as film, in the presence of directors who can make a visual work of written material.

“The Spider’s Head” is at least a good movie. It used an idea written by the press in 2010 that resonated with readers, perhaps because of its symbolism that can contain everything, and especially refers to what we can define as “Arabic” instead of the press. to ignore and disguise.
