The Parallax View (1974)
When posting a photo on Facebook of a small bug on my window pane, today, I used the terms perspective and perception, relating the bug’s point-of-view to our limited understanding of what goes on in the world around us. It’s not the bug’s fault that it cannot comprehend other realities, any more than it’s ours. Then I was reminded of this film, starring Warren Beatty.
We are brainwashed in so many subtle ways that we cannot distinguish fact from fiction. This film speaks to that paranoia.
Is it any wonder that we, the older generation, are considered Conspiracy Theorists because we’ve seen this bullshit time and time again, and we’re trying to wake the younger ones up to this (un)reality?
