More a Frankenstein Story

A movie on apes might be a Frankenstein story? Not according to any theory of evolution.

Hear James Franco relate Rise of the Apes, his upcoming prequel to Planet of the Apes, to our favorite monster.

SPARK OF BEING Trailer - Dave Douglas & Keystone, and Bill Morrison

Close your eyes and just listen

New tunes to which the monster arises. A film with jazz score, creation by Dave Douglas and Keystone, first performed last April. Yes I see it, yes I hear it.

Spark of Being: It is testament to how deep and human the myth of the monster is that this story continues to be retold in image, sound, and word.


It's not as if the monster only looms in my imagination as the days get shorter and the nights get cold. It's just that everyone else starts thinking about him more at this time of year. Candy displays, greeting card racks, costume shops. The familiar face leers back at me. Hello, old friend.
