Re: Frank Miller completely loses the plot

You're superimposing a work of fiction on reality again. Art Transcends reality and life. You don't have to like it or consider it good. I consider it good art but that's a whole other set of discussions. It's a fallacy to say it's bad art so therefore the artist is bad. The artist doesn't have to subscribe to his own art. He could be propegating shit for all we know willfully and knowingly and trying to decieve us all. Of course he's getting paid for that and we're paying him but that doesn't change things. He doesn't owe us anything. Finding violence offensable is another issue also. Hence the movie full Metal Jacket and Clockwork Orange and other such notable classics.
