Ah, so you meant "hyperbole" not "allegory". The comment makes more sense now.

whatever, i think allegory works.

"allegory
a symbolic representation, the blindfolded figure with scales is an allegory of justice"

I think it would only be an allegory if the character was meant to represent Disney, like how lady Justice with the scales is is a personification or anthropomorphic manifestation meant to represent the concept of justice.

Hyperbole would be a better word.

All three of you are wrong. The correct word here is "exacerbate".

Great little minimalist movie produced by Steven Soderbourgh (Did I spell his name right? I'm not googling it). Damian Lewis gives a fantastic performance and I'm surprised not a lot of people know this film. The ending leaves a lot to be discussed. I recommend it. It's currently on Netfix Instant.

8/10

Nighthawks (US 1981), which has an excellent cast: Nigel Davenport, the late Persis Khambatta, Lyndsey Wagner, Billy Dee Williams, Rutger Hauer (in his first Hollywood film) and Sylvester Stallone (in one of his better efforts). The story is quite simple and involves two NYC cops pitched against ruthless international terrorists, as opposed to their usual routine of rounding up muggers on the streets. Keith Emerson provided a score which combined the cliches of seventies cop soundtracks with his own inimitable style, producing an amazing hybrid. When Nighthawks was released, I did not understand the film or the soundtrack, now they both seem way ahead of their time.
