The Prisoner is coming to the big screen? The choice of Chris Nolan as director is a good thing… but talk about risk. If this screws up it will make Gedo Senki’s impending suckage look great in comparison.
Interestingly, Haibane Renmei evokes many of the themes of the Prisoner, the most obvious being the parallel between Glie and the Village, and the Wall and the Rover preventing escape. I haven’t seen enough of The Prisoner to really comment in more detail.
I also note that the television show Lost seems to be deliberately evocative of aspects of The Prisoner as well. I don’t follow Lost as closely as I’d like either, but maybe someone else can comment.
