~*Inner Chaos*~


I got COMPLETELY wrapped up in the book The Island of Doctor Moreau by H.G. Wells. [link] I was so absorbed in this book that I forgot about everything and that includes DA. :faint: I really like the message of this book which is, when do we start taking responsibility for what we have done in life? How far is to far? When is our humanity compromised and what do we do when it is compromised? Talk about deep! I then watched the movie and yelled at the TV screen. Don't bother watching the movie, LAME!

I was so into this book that I made a fractal for it. The book is very creepy and at times frightening and I tried to convey the horrors of experimenting on an unwilling animal or person in my fractal. To me the fractal looks like a brain morphing into something completely different than the original organ.

"A mind truly opened to what science has to each must see that it is a little thing. It may be that save in this little planet, this speck of cosmic dust, invisible long before the nearest star could be attained—it may be, I say, that nowhere else does this thing called pain occur. But the laws we feel our way towards… Why, even on this earth, even among living things, what pain is there?" Dr. Moreau (So creepy coming out of his mouth).

Which movie did you watch? There are two I am aware of, one with Val Kilmer and (oh crap I can't recall anything right now, um, the man that played the Godfather... ), and there is an older version also. Is the book a lot different than the movie?

MARLON BRANDO! hehe

Anyway, I do love the fractal. I like fractals with the wispy pieces.

I watched the Val Kilmer version. I like Kilmer as an actor, but that movie was horrible. The movie reminded me of a fan fiction version of the book. Just . . well . . . weird. Older movie version you say? I will do some research and see what I can find out. I would love to watch it.

I love wisps as well. I try to do the look, but it comes out like the movie, just . . . well . . . weird.:giggle: This my first "wisp fractal" I am satisfied with. I am happy you like it. :iconveryexcitedplz:

I went to search for info on the other movie for you and found out there is yet an older one based on the book but with a different title (might be why I didn't know about it), Island of Lost Souls, made in 1933 with Bela Lugosi in the part of Sayer of the Law. Now I'm going to have to try to find it. I love Bella Lugosi movies, cheesy as they are.

The other one was made in 1977 and stars Burt Lancaster and Michael York. I had a crush on York when I was a child but I wouldn't really recommend the movie if you didn't like the other. I did rewatch the one you saw a couple of years ago and was wondering what it was I had liked about it when it first came out. I suppose when it first came out it was unique and back then they didn't have the access to graphics, green screens, and such that are so a part of today's movies.

Being a Kilmer fan, there's a movie I stumbled onto late one night on TV that I had never heard of before, and it also stars Denzel Washington, another great actor, IMHO, called Deja Vu. It was also directed by Tony Scott, always liked most of his and his brother Ridley's work, especially their scifi and/or fantasy stuff. Deja Vu is not a knock you out of your socks movie nor is it constant action but I really did like it and I like the concept of the scifi angels, gives you something to ponder.

Sorry to stray so far from the fractal topic, I'm just a scifi/fantasy/horror movie nut. I even took electives in collage for horror movies, which was no where close to my major, just because I've had a love of horror movies since I was a child.

You should post more wispy fractals, you did good.

I enjoy horror movies as well. I will have to check out the 1977 version. Deja Vu was pretty good. I enjoyed it, but I doubt I will ever watch it again.

Beautiful representation of a story which is all but beautiful!
I happen to have read that book a couple of months ago and, indeed, makes you think deep once you go past the pigs and leopards.
