Many times the phrase let their deaths not be in vain has been uttered like at moments of civil strife and I am here asking myself, if deep down these deaths were meaningless. Did someone have to die for something to be achieved?
Take for example the over 30 people who were killed by police in our last election. What did they die for? What, if you were to meet their parents or relatives, would you tell them was achieved by their deaths?
In the movie silence, based on the Japanese inquisition of the 16th century (2016) by Scorsese, a number of Japanese endure torture and some even die to show their faith in Jesus. Was this rational? What was the point?
Is a tribute to youth stupidity and an example of how the law can be a real ass when those in charge of its application are pigheaded. This movie is the story of a young man who tries to smuggle two kilos of coke out of Turkey to the States. And as all stupid things go, this is one of the most stupid because dude is unable to hold it together at the various police checks at the airport and is discovered.
He is thrown into prison first for 4 years only for the term to be revised upwards to 30 years. He makes the clever decision that he can’t die in that prison and starts to work on an escape plan. The first plan almost succeeds except for the civil works that the Turks had done closing his escape route.
His girlfriend ( she is a keeper) comes to see him in prison and I think he is inspired to do more. Let’s just say he escapes and goes back home, minus the drugs of course.
If you have nothing to do for the weekend, here is something to help reduce the hour count.
Is Carter lucky or is he good stalling? What is it that stops Sade from burning down the whole house if all he wants is the girl dead?
Though Sade he can’t be trusted & that he kills for two reasons; as necessity or as a contract but never for fun. Maybe this is the only reason he doesn’t kill Isabel at the end.
This movie is thin on action but heavy on the waiting. A great portion of it happens within the walls of Carter’s house where wills are tested to the very end.
I wouldn’t call it great.
Is a movie with a surprise at the end.
It’s a good way to start the year.
