Anyone that doesn't know the issue of the film and is groing to see it stop reading now so that it's not "spoilt" for you.
Ok for those that know what the film is about.
Much has been said about this movie because of what occurs in it and to a degree the occurance has caused a deal of almost outrage among certain parts of our society. they suggest that the film is promoting euthanasia and shouldn't be shown.
Should we remove such issues in movies because it makes us feel uncomfortable and why pick on this subject when literally millions of on screen killings have been shown without protest. Why is this taboo when it's ok to show other killings?
Is the movie industry really a lifestyle lobby that is trying to make us behave how they want us to, or is it a reflection of what we are.
I've seen the argument that the trailers didn't advertise the film accurately, well what movie trailer ever has?
I believe that the outrage has very little to do with the subject matter and more to do with the choice that was made regarding the subject. A different choice and the movie would be hailed as a fine commentary on social values
