“A great many people think they are thinking when they are really rearranging their prejudices.”
This quote reminded me of a bonus feature that came with the DVD for “Children of Men” called “The Possibility of Hope”. The movie was a good sci-fi movie if you did not think too much about how humans had stopped reproducing. It had a good script and acting but some of the cinematography was amazing. The car scene with the five people made it seem like you were seated in the center of the car with them.
The bonus feature was an interview of several intellectuals on the ideas that led to the movie. They had drawn some interesting and pessimistic conclusions about where the world is going. When I first started listening to what the were saying I thought it sounded like intellectual babble. I am not sure who they were talking to but I suspected they enjoyed the sound of their voice most of all. They finally lost me when they started talking about tropical weather for Iceland and the impact of gated communities on society. Fortunately you can use this babble to make an interesting movie if you have a good director, actors, and script writer.
