A year ago
today a small
film was released to a meager 301 theaters in the USA. Little did
I realize at the time what a profound effect it would have on me,
catching it only because Christian Bale's action performance in Reign
of Fire had been impressive and found Equilibrium listed in his IMDb credits.
I saw no
trailer...no poster...only read its synops at IMDb, then learned of its
release through Ebert & Roeper.
all I can
say of my theater experience. One I seldom find but longingly seek with
each new film. The action junkie in me wanted...no needed more,
but Equilibrium was unceremoniously dropped from the theaters before I
could adequately fill my new addiction. In desperation I turned to the
Net to take the edge off of the withdrawals only to find CHUD.com.
Not even an official
website had been granted to this film.
maintaining this site I aimed to fill a need. A need that had been
severely neglected since I knew without a doubt that Equilibrium would
& will be discovered by like minded people & action
aficionados. I didn't want to see the small but incredible amount of
information about this film lost in the vast receptacle we call the
Worldwide Web. So, uncharacteristically, I created a "fansite."
understatement. This film & this site have been more
fulfilling to me then many endeavors I have blindly pursued in my life.
The gift of the filmmakers in creating Equilibrium has touched me
deeply. The love & devotion of the fans is
overwhelming. My appreciation & gratitude can never be
adequately expressed except in the work I render here. Thank

- While updating the links to the Index of
Kurt Wimmer's comments about EQ from CHUD's message boards I
realized that I had inadvertently omitted his post about
Equilibrium's evisceration by the mainstream theatrical critics last
December. This has been corrected and is now included in the Index. The following is a teaser of what he
had to say...
"I had thought, at worst, the film
would be simply dismissed - but, in fact, it is being pilloried. ...it
muddily seems to me that the film is being held to a much higher
standard of comparison than most $20 mil sci-fi/action films - the
narrative standard of 1984 (the best book of the 20th century in my
opinion) and the action/production standard of The Matrix. ...But, in
the end, I can only hope that cinephiles will find the film and judge
for themselves because it is the audience of people who love and love
to be entertained by films that I made it for." - Kurt Wimmer, CHUD Message Board

remarks about Ultraviolet from the CHUD
message board have been added to the Equilibrium
"...I am off to China tonite to
begin the undertaking of making this film. Between now and February 9th
- the first scheduled day of principal photography - lie innumerable
pitfalls; any of which could scuttle the production and send me back to
America. But if I make it that far, and beyond, through the very long
shoot - then, I will do everything in my power to make for you and for
me - the best film I possibly can. Kurt "
As fans of his first film
we need to remember to keep our expectations at a realistic level...at
least until principal photography begins. Here's wishing him luck &
all the best!!
