this organization would have not been more believable if it had a religious origin
You make a strong case, and while I respectfully disagree on that point, I think we're getting into dead horse territory here.
... As I said before, some people think the LoS
makes a lick of sense, and others, myself included, don't. Even if we do
accept their basic premise, however, that mass murder is a coherent if misguided tool to promote justice and reduce suffering, is that agenda really any more compelling or intellectually stimulating than Sebastian Shaw's, or Whiplash's?
don't think so, but a movie can
have one-dimensional villains and still be deep and sophisticated. The Nazis in Casablanca
, after all, didn't have any depth to speak of. Question is, then, is there anything really meaty going on elsewhere
, or is it all just pomp and atmosphere?
