In this thread , a discussion started about whether an animated film can be an “epic”
I think not, I think that part of what makes a movie an epic is a breathtaking sweep of history with sweeping vistas, crowds of extras, and a sense of historic importance. All this, as far as I know, cannot be done in a small, indie film shot with a couple of friends and a single camera.
With that in mind, what make a movie an “epic”?
Lawrence of Arabia
War and Peace
Lord of the Rings
To Sir With Love
