Today is not a specifically a good day for me. Headache. Bad one. Thankfully it has eased off, but still there. Threatening to erupt again.
I wanted to listen to a movie to distract me, if possible. Then I stumbled upon this movie on YouTube. It was intense, realistic as far as characters are concerned. It is “based upon a true story. Only the names have been changed to protect the innocent.” That line appealed to the headache.
It was set in 1948. Everything was Good. The war was over. People were getting their lives back, and others were learning how to live civilian. There wasn’t anything about Los Angeles negative. The film exuded pride in America. However, the bad guy is a bad guy head to toe. The thing is: There wasn’t one single reason given for who he was, other than his name. He was a robber, and a killer. He killed without remorse. ‘
Another point that wasn’t given was why was he was doing it? This character needed a lot of money, or wanted more money NOW, but there isn’t one hint as to what he is doing all this to get the money for?
These points notwithstanding, it was a good movie. There was a lot of tension, drama, and action. The people were people: I love when a movie has good characterization.
Has anyone else seen it?
