I don't generally find myself that disturbing or disturbed. I mean, sure I believe a murderer deserves a worse punishment than death, but I don't want to fantasize about the methods or anything.

Having said that, I thimk using some film and sound techniques can make Watership Down more disturbing,

Have you seen "The Boys from Brazil"? Peck, Olivier, and Mason trying to one up each other in the acting dept. Scary premise too.

Re: There Will be Blood.

Incredible film making on every technical level but my main issue with it is that a man as vile and confrontational as Daniel Plainview, in that day and age, would have gotten an anonymous bullet in the back pretty early on from one of his many rivals. The fact that he was allowed to carry on like that for decades to serve the movie's narrative killed it for me.

Says who? I think that's a rather bold assumption considering no one from that time is still around (at least not from the first couple acts.) Also, it's a movie, and if he died early on, well then, there wouldn't have been a movie.

I think I agree with Chula. However, he seemed tolerable enough until the end of the movie. I just didn't get a "vile" vibe, let alone a simplke "*******" vibe. I just thought of him as a strict businessman. I mean, yeah he
Spoiler for spoiler:
beat that sucker Eli Sunday pretty hard for demanding the money, but his adopted som DID lose his hearing.


Also, I think the only Peck movie I've seen is To Kill a Mockingbird. I understand he's in both Cape Fear's.

I think the idea was to take Rockefeller out of the picture, literally and figuratively.

His fortune was mainly used to create the modern systematic approach of targeted philanthropy. He was able to do this through the creation of foundations that had a major effect on medicine, education and scientific research. His foundations pioneered the development of medical research and were instrumental in the eradication of hookworm and yellow fever.

Rockefeller was also the founder of both the University of Chicago and Rockefeller University and funded the establishment of Central Philippine University in the Philippines. He was a devoted Northern Baptist and supported many church-based institutions. Rockefeller adhered to total abstinence from alcohol and tobacco throughout his life.
Plainview was no Rockefeller.
