Tony Cartmill Posted January 11, 2006 Share Posted January 11, 2006 1. Too many recent international thrillers and dramas lately have a plot line where the American corporations and/or spy agencies are the underlying evil and immoral side of the problems, and the Arab leaders are just trying to protect their interests against the Western aggressors. "Syriana" is the perfect example of this. While a very well made movie, I don't know why almost all the Americans are portrayed as greedy bad, while even the suicide Arab bomber is just a poor sypathetic character.2. In so many family-get-together movies lately (The Family Stone, Happy Endings, Saved, Home For The Holidays...), why is the gay son or daughter always the most well-adjusted member of the family? Is it only the hetero that has relationship issues? Am I just paranoid, or is this Hollywood and Sundance furthering their political and social agenda?
