“Man’s inhumanity to God” is a line from Tennessee Williams’ The Night of the Iguana, in reference to pollution, the depleting of natural resources, and our general mindless disregard for the divinity of creation. This from a 1961 script…

It’s a concept that I hope to remember as I watch (as best I can) my thoughts, words and actions to try to avoid creating new karmas when in the course of human events. It bears extraordinary impact, just as the film does. It is Felliniesque while Williamsian, with the decided auteurism of John Huston. Watching The Night of the Iguana on a chilly night in northern California, 2010, was a night to remember.
