Of Movies, Madness, Wolves, and Men
Movies love to picture madness. Making movies--or watching them--offers a way for the culture to consider every possible variety of madness. Movies let us consider what madness is, what causes madness, what sorts of havoc madness wreaks, what sanity might consist of, and what options we have for avoiding or surviving madness. It's a mad, mad world, and we see why--and what to do about it--whenever we watch movies. Stay tuned for a discussion of The Wolfman, which explores the madness of rage. Men, women, love, and rage.
