Actually that film by Woody (can't remember name) was an Oliver Stone
version of satire against violence but it was so subtle that most people
didn't realize it. He was pointing out how the media turns ordinary
worthless scum into media celebrities so it was really a put down on not
only violence, but the media, and our entire socio/political system that
lacks higher values. But then again ya gotta be an Ollie Stone fan,
which I am. The film that really ticked me off was Pulp Fiction which
according to some film freaks was also a subtle put down of our society,
but I missed that somehow- and this film got a zillion awards but I
considered it one of the worse films of all time.

And I also don't see what film celebrities have to do with many such
issues. And I wouldn't recommend Woody's film to children or Jessie
Helms. <G>
