Yep - my favourite Danish channel, DR2, is sending Natural Born Killers (it's just finished - I'd forgotten how much I like it - NOT the violence - but the constant and intelligent society and media criticism etc...) and right after - right now - they're sending A Clockwork Orange - ooh, how I like license financed, state-owned television that dares to be different...:)

Both classic films.

 

Rasmus, I agree with you. These films are great due to their sharp criticism/satire of modern society (especially the media which makes cult stars of criminals)

 

unfortunatley people focus on the uber-violence of these films instead of the underlying message.

 

that said, I'd still be scared to watch them one after another :eek:

I'm not sure how normal I am this morning, either..;)

- yeah the media criticism and the constant doubt as to who really are the good and the bad guys - the prison manager and the police officer in NBK are REALLY scare to me, too - and A Clockwork is even more radical when it comes to this - remember the police officers? Also, in both films, the underlying question as to whether you really can talk about good and bad guys when society forms you to such extent..
