I am worried that Jarhead is going to come out with more messages about how glorious the war in Iraq really is. Even if it shows things in a bad way...it's a movie. The characters will look so cool, so heroic...their friendships will be focused on, but the fiction of it all will prevent any very real impact. I hope that this is not a Hollywood version of a recruitment film.
The other movie disturbs me just in its title. Isnt a lot of gang warfare about people who want to get rich or who will die trying? Do we really want to impound that image into peoples' heads?
Has anyone read up on these films? Are my fears unfounded?
