This is a movie from back in 1997 starring Mr. Al Pacino, a most
favourite actor of my own.
Its a mob movie, involving an FBI informant
played by Johnny Depp who infiltrates the "family"
in order to betray
the secrets of what sins are shown to have gone on, to the feds
only brief comment on this movie is that they should stop encouraging
of folks involved with the Italian mob - with a
bigoted agenda in mind without a doubt.
The days of using weapons
of the sort shown in this movie in a scene where members of a
"shooting party" are seen to dismember their victims using butcher
knives are no longer
in our psyche as a part of everyday living as in
the days of old prior to conquest of a civilizing
effort to bring some
civil ideas of co-existing in peace and with some sanity along the
we have come to develop instead of the constant pre-occupation with Hobbesian notions
of what life entails on the planet
for man - given the very negative cynicism depicted in this movie.
Lets not show such cruelty anymore as potentially normal place in
some in our midst for
whichever reason - such barbarity as though
men could be ordinarily be driven to display it
for no other reason than
to vent insanely against other community members just to show
psyche which has no place in modern affairs of humankind anymore -
if ever it did.
The very nicest men I know have included - the very best
in fact in regards to decency
is an Italian cafe owner born in Albania,
along with my brother in law Jose from Spain.
Lets use them as the
better examples instead of what we can be and how we can live and
make more of on this earth of the greatest most caring most human
and most decent men
who lack no strength whatever. Jose is a
martial arts "black-belt" while Clement had
incredible strength to deter
any "Phillistine" opponent I could imagine. Stop
with the bigoted
stereotypes and the encouraging of a wrong ideas of what is
enough" in Men as to represent real virtue in our midst ultimately. The
tactics shown in this movie have no reasonable justification I submit
they are meant to achieve for any sane purposes I could give
them credit for
that made this movie genre as represented here.
Strength has to be used by good
men for good purposes and only
sanely enough always I submit, instead of the
examples shown in this
movie of a supposed (enviable for some?) idea of "macho
