Review on: Wanted | J. McAvoy, A. Jolie, M. Freeman

WantedWanted

I tried to review this movie on Amazon, but you have to buy the video there and avoid words like f@#k. I am avoiding it here just in case it may offend somebody. But I really don’t understand because it’s really one of the words most  used in the English language, at least in America. Then again, maybe I do understand; we are members of a rotting socioeconomic system that doesn’t bat an eye at the murder of thousand of innocent people in immoral wars for profit, but maybe the word “f@#k” can offend some sort of “morality” in it–hypocrisy at its best. I am including an hilarious video by Osho, on the word f@#k, at the end of this post that even suggests a meditation on the famous word, but please read my review first; it has a message. Thanks!

I am writing this review because everyone I read missed the point. It’s true that this is an action film with chases, shootings, gore and lots of special effects, Hollywood’s preferred way to distract you and get your attention away from other issues. But it is not just that; it also has a message. Remember the last line? The bullet is retreating after it finished the last of the bad guys, and in the process the main character (Wesley) is remembering his struggle to first, get out of an insipid useless life, and now finally finishing his entanglement with assassins. The bullet reaches his weapon, he looks at the audience and says: “. . . and what the f@#k are you doing?”
In today’s world, that is an excellent question, “What the f@#k are we doing with our lives?” And I am afraid that regretfully, like most reviewers, most people will miss it.

This is, I believe, the actual quote: “This is me taking control from Sloan (last assassin, M. Freeman), from the fraternity, from Janice from billing reports, from ergonomic keyboards, from cheating girlfriends and a sack of shit best friends. This is me taking back control of my life. (now is when he looks at the audience and asks) . . . and what the fuck have you done lately?

Isn’t that the challenge?

But wait, what am I doing? You can’t ask yourself that question, you have been programmed, and your program will not allow it. Right?

Enjoy your video!

Malcolm X Knew | Chris Hedges

Malcolm X 1965Malcolm X, two weeks before he was murdered in 1965

I just read an article written by Mr. Chris Hedges, “Malcom X Was Right About America”, and I couldn’t help but realizing not only that Malcolm X was prophetic, but that we are still unable to face our mistakes, and are still willing to be the cannon fodder of a decaying empire. And I quote:

“We are the nation Malcolm knew us to be. Human beings can be redeemed. Empires cannot. Our refusal to face the truth about empire, our refusal to defy the multitudinous crimes and atrocities of empire, has brought about the nightmare Malcolm predicted. And as the Digital Age and our post-literate society implant a terrifying historical amnesia, these crimes are erased as swiftly as they are committed.”

“Malcolm, like James Baldwin, understood that only by facing the truth about who we are as members of an imperial power can people of color, along with whites, be liberated. This truth is bitter and painful. It requires an acknowledgment of our capacity for evil, injustice and exploitation, and it demands repentance. But we cling like giddy children to the lies we tell ourselves about ourselves. We refuse to grow up. And because of these lies, perpetrated across the cultural and political spectrum, liberation has not taken place. Empire devours us all.”

It is devouring us all: http://www.amazon.com/11-Truth-Implications-S-Guzman-C-ebook/dp/B00GEIKLPQ/
