I don't think overexposure to cinematic violence is what causes societies ills. I think it's underexposure to the real violence that underpins every aspect of human existence.
What violence are you talking about?
For instance, Isabelle, you're going to have chicken for dinner tonight. Did you have to ring the bird's neck? Did you have to pull the feathers out of its carcass? Did you have to roast its dead flesh? Of course not... If you want a hamburger you go and get a clown to kill a cow for you. Because you don't have to personally dirty your hands. You can pretend you're not a part of the process of murder. but everybody is, and that's why people don't understand violence. They don't understand its purpose or its function. You know I might not be too wise about a lot of things, but there are a couple of things I know for sure.
And they are?
One: is that I love violence. I love watching it, I love movies with violence and I refuse to watch any movies that don't have violence in it. Number two is that I want you to shut your fucking mouth so we can relax, have a nice meal and watch a movie, okay? More wine anyone?
