The Ninth Gate

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking about remaking this movie myself seeing as with all if it's flaws it's still my favorite movie if all time. I see so much potential having read "The Club Dumas" for how I can do it better than Polanski. srs.

 

Questions for those who have seen it.

 

Do you think Corso was Lucifer, a worthy soul or something else?

 

Do you think "the woman" was The Whore of Babylon, Lucifer, a witch or something else?

 

Ambiguity is certainly a theme for this film but I'm curious to hear your opinion. Cheers.

Because it's my favorite. What are your theories?

I think both were vessels and not fully who they appeared to be. Depp could never quite pin things down and he always seemed to be just either waking up or not not fully in control of his choices. Fully being the operative word.

I think Corso was hypnotized to "forget" details and was just a worthy soul. He himself brought the books together.  But its been several years since I last saw it.

I need to rewatch this movie, it's been forever, though I remember really enjoying it and honestly one of the few Depp films where I can stand him.

His character is actually a greedy douche who becomes worse as the movie goes on. Yet the worse he gets the more the audience likes him.

For some reason I never liked this movie. Can't put my finger on it but it just never did it for me and I have seen it twice.

Another thing, each time I think about this movie I immediately get it confused with "The Gate" an 80's movie that I enjoyed more than The Ninth Gate, actually.

I think the girl was sent by the devil and was protecting Corso as he was intended to enter the gate all along.  It was an intriguing movie but could have been explained a little better.  Still, not a bad flick. 

I haven't read the book but I would think that would explain a lot.  Oh and honestly, fug Roman Polanski (fuggin pedophile)

Perhaps the Girl was using/helping Corso to open the ninth gate because she, as a fallen angel, couldn't do it herself? She also knew he wasn't in it for unlimited power like Balkan, he was in it for the chase.
