"The wild is a dangerous place"



I'm still thinking about the elf king in the Hobbit movie ... there's something so fey about him. In a clip of interviews with the actor who plays him, Lee Pace, he says this of Thranduil, the elf king of Mirkwood ... The elves work in nature in such a harmonious way and there's that element of nature that is very much a part of his [the elf king's] spirit, I believe. He's a wild thing, and the wild is a dangerous place ... Here below is a clip of the dwarves being taken prisoner by the elves of Mirkwood and their leader, Thorin Oakenshield, being brought before the elf king. It doesn't go well ...

Wild is dangerous but I think it's different from evil. I think God must be wild to the core.

Yes, perhaps the elf king is not so much evil as amoral, which is kind of scary in its own right ;)
