With news of a rival James Bond film by the name of Never Say Never Again (1983), the official 007 filmmakers from Eon Productions sought to make Octopussy (1983), their thirteenth Bond film, their biggest spy adventure yet.
Michael G. Wilson,
This is a Byzantium film, a movie that burns with amber fire - a powerful tale of the making of James Bond. I have never been so moved by a film - this is better than CITIZEN KANE, THE RULES OF THE GAME, and AU HAZARD BALTHAZAR. Roger Moore has never been so human. Cork has made a masterpiece. It's a shame that this wasn't included on the AFI 100 greatest films list. The best scene has increasingly human stuntmen explaining the classic Monorail scene - the frailty of life is juxtaposed with the sering power of fantasy, myth, and adventure. We are touched by our desire to seek the afterlife, to know the unknowable, and the touch the skies. It is like the song: "Just like the Moonrakers soars, away to the soaring wind . . ."
