NOTES

"Progressing through a strange, heady mixture of ravishing spectacle and self-subverting camp humor, 'Rapa Nui' (the title is the islanders' name for their home) suggests an unholy alliance of Cecil B. DeMille's kitschily overscaled 'The Ten Commandments', F.W. Murnau's haunting, lyrical 'Tabu', and Leni Riefenstahl's body-worshipping 'Olympia'. Just when the film seems its most earnest, Reynolds will drop in a deflating, anachronistic punch line, apparently just for the pleasure of watching his elaborately constructed edifice shake." --From "'Rapa Nui' Camps Out on Easter Island" by Dave Kehr, DAILY NEWS, September 9, 1994.

"'Rapa Nui' establishes Reynolds as one of the few contemporary masters of the widescreen format."

"He uses strong diagonals and an incredible depth of field to create a series of highly charged, expressionistic spaces that make Easter Island look like a colony established by Dr. Caligari. His talent is great and so is the perversity of this intriguingly tortured, self-contradictory film." --From "'Rapa Nui' Camps Out on Easter Island" by Dave Kehr, DAILY NEWS, September 9, 1994.
