guffaa88Amazing sense of unease and discomfort throughout. Anyone complaining about the end, that is the film driving the point. The passiveness and lack of action is exactly what the film is commenting on, being too soft, too "politically correct" (lack of a better phrase, even though it is actually said outright in the film), and too people-pleasing.
The fact that they come back twice, the fact that the father stares at the keys and does nothing, the fact that they comply in the last 3mins of the film when there is no true apparent threat... everything is trying to methaphorically explain that the comforts of middle class life really affect and wash out the vigor of adult/parental personality. The film does comment on the "old days" of aggressive and parental discipline, again pointing out that the other end of the spectrum is equally as horrible.
In general, an extremely effective film 8 months ago

mrjellowKarl Popper - ''in order to maintain a tolerant society, the society must be intolerant of intolerance.”
Speak No Evil serves as a metaphor: when one becomes too politically correct, too soft, those who wish harm upon others seize the opportunity. 7 months 1 week ago
