ENVIRONMENT

Big Yellow Taxi sung by Joni Mitchell

"They took all the trees and put 'em in a tree museum
And then they charged all the people twenty-five bucks just to see 'em
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got till it's gone
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot"

'WATCHMEN'

Watchmen Movie - official site
(watchmenmovie.warnerbros.com)

Watchmen (2009)
Director : Zack Snyder
"When an ex-superhero is murdered, a vigilante named Rorschach begins an investigation into the murder, which begins
to lead to a much more terrifying conclusion..."

(imdb.com)

Watchmen - a superhero film
"Based on the 1986 comic book limited series Watchmen..."
(Wikipedia)

Impossible d'échapper à "Watchmen"
"Complexe et mystérieuse, l’aventure des «Watchmen» se déroule dans une Amérique alternative de 1985.
Les super-héros font partie du quotidien et le monde est suspendu à l'Horloge de l'Apocalypse, symbole des tensions internationales qui, si elles éclatent, déboucheront sur une troisième guerre mondiale. Rorschach, un justicier masqué, enquête sur la mort d’un ami et découvre un complot visant
à discréditer tous les super-héros. «Watchmen» a révolutionné l'univers des comics américains en donnant une profondeur jamais atteinte aux personnages
de comics. Alan Moore les dépeint comme des héros fatigués et névrosés se débattant avec leurs doutes, leur l’ennui et leur paranoïa."
