I like my movies on crack.
Not me, I mean the movies. Like Vanilla Sky. That was some good crack. So much so that my friends asked me to reimburse them for me recommending we go see that film.
Now, Revolver is an impressive film, itself, for carrying a lot of crack-session inspired philosophy. Kudos to Jason Statham for trying out a new role.
This is definitely a film where, if you’re into this kind of stuff, you’ll really be pondering what they’re saying.
My quick gist of it is there is no evil. There is only us. And because we, I, are motivated for self-first goals, we enable what is detrimental toward others – which can be termed evil.
Perhaps you should just go look up Kabbalah. It’s somewhat of the basis of the movie. The movie is probably far more interesting.
I don’t think I wholely agree with the philosopohy. It doesn’t stand up very well as far as I’ve thought it through.
But, for those people like me who really like to think about that stuff, the movie will really get you recursing into yourself.
