And eclipse the will of millions living
In surplus populations
They’re running out of patience
And their wounds are bleeding on your hands"
— "Marx My Words" - Jenn Fiorentino
The real problem with books-turned-movies isn’t “omg they didn’t include every single word in the book” it’s “omg they completely overlooked the main theme, threw out any significant allegories, took away all the emotional pull, an turned it into a boring action movie with a love triangle in it”
Can I just say that I am tired of people judging a character by ‘moral’ standards. Like jfc it’s fiction, get a little wild for fuck’s sake.
Don’t choose your favourite characters like you choose your best friends. Choose characters that challenge you, that make you question your values, choose characters that are messed up because those are the most interesting characters and empathy doesn’t come from understanding the people you like or relating to people who are the same as you.
If fiction doesn’t make you want to step out of your comfort zone then you’re probably watching/reading it wrong.
