A reason to use Ape McGape
Flash Gordon (1980) is a swashbuckling two hours of good against evil. It's even more amusing for the many tongue-in-cheek references to the Illuminati and the New World Order. Once initiated, it is hard to watch a movie or t.v. programme without noticing them. Most of the time it is covert propaganda, designed to acclimate and pacify. On rare occasions, it provides a genuine warning of sinister agendas. But in the case of Flash Gordon, it seems that the higher-ups in the entertainment business are parodying the puppet-masters pulling our strings.
I'm going to try to come back and comment on this analysis but I had to post it right away because it is totally Ape McGape
