Here is a statement that should cause you concern:
"There's nothing you can do to a human being onscreen that is taboo anymore. Over and over again, people are breaking the boundaries of the body, hurting people, chopping people up, ravaging people. ... For things to be truly scary, we're going to have to find new boundaries to tread on." -- writer/producer Akiva Goldsman (The Da Vinci Code).
Hollywood never ceases to amaze me. It loves to push boundaries to sell movies. No matter that it degrades human beings, puts thoughts and images onto screen that would be better unimagined and seeks the lowest common denominator of civilization in the pursuit of fame and wealth. Then, rises up in what we are to believe is righteous indignation over the environment and the war, or anything in liberal bag of causes.
I really don't understand how anyone can listen to these people talk with a straight face.
