The question came out of a YouTube video of Sir Ian McKellan and Sir Patrick Stewart.
Having watched the 2001 version, I've come to the conclusion that Godot is a legend, an illusion, an allegory of the unseen superior, holding power but never seen. His underlings do his bidding because their boss's boss's boss has bade them so, but no one has ever seen them. Capitalist, socialist, communist, the superior requires of the inferior, for what the latter knows not. Vladimir and Estragon, at the bidding of the unseen master, a metaphor for the lower class perennially waiting for instruction from the upper class and, ultimately, as capable of handling this world than they, which is to say, no more capable, because an illusion cannot control reality, even though we try to force it and therefore divorce ourselves of the responsibility of overseeing our own reality.
Play it? Watch it? Listen to it? Post it! Discuss Movies, TV, DVDs, CDs, and Evangelion! Compare Computer, Video, Pen & Paper, Sports, and any other games you want. Most anything entertaining is fair game.
