In the course of this enquiry I found that much more had been done than I had been aware of, when I first published the Essay. The poverty and misery arising from a too rapid increase of population had been distinctly seen, and the most violent remedies proposed, so long ago as the times of Plato and Aristotle. And of late years the subject has been treated in such a manner by some of the French Economists; occasionally by Montesquieu, and, among our own writers, by Dr. Franklin, Sir James Stewart, Mr. Arthur Young, and Mr. Townsend, as to create a natural surprise that it had not excited more of the public attention.

As with most Greenaway films, the visual composition of individual scenes in Darwin reflects the director's fascination with Renaissance painting (he was first trained as a muralist).  In 2006, Greenaway even embarked on an ambitious series of video installations called Nine Classic Paintings Revisited , in which he applied his often controversial vision to  The Last Supper ,  The Wedding at Cana and other famous artworks. You can watch an interview with the filmmaker about The Last Supper here . Even better, watch his 2010 UC-Berkeley lecture on the inspiration and philosophy behind the entire project, which we've included in our collection of 275 Cultural Icons . We've also added Darwin to our collection of Free Movies Online .
