i like anti-heroes. i like a world with complex and realistic motivations. people like to justify their actions to themselves, consider themselves righteous or morally superior but ultimately their actions are almost always self serving in some respect. no one goes out and fights crime because they want to help people. they believe in some ideology they need confirmation on, or they have something to gain, or they're fighting a war where a villain to one side is a hero to the other... Even my heroes... Elon musk changed the face of technology and green energy but he did it to make a profit. Erin Pizzey created the first domestic violence shelter because she needed to change the circumstances that disadvantaged her as a child, but ultimately her entire movement was hijacked by a billion dollar industry that killed her dog, threatened her family, corrupted and perverted her ideology, and ran her out of town, and ultimately despite literally risking life and limb for what she believes in, undeniably, they won. I want a movie that captures THAT. Not the world as we wish it was. The world as it actually is. A cruel, fucked up world where the people capable of the most good are the people who align that good with their own self interest, and people who are truly selfless get exploited and stepped on, and there is no recourse. I want a film where a guy just straight up shoots up wall street because they stole his house and home (which i wish people would do instead of shooting up churches). Its not right, its not righteous, and he is not a hero. But its gratifying, and its human.2
