Fascinating article by T. R. Witcher for Salon.com regarding more recent examples of a cinematic hero’s “home”, and what it means in the context of the movie:
I find articles like this incredibly fascinating. Shining a light on elements within a movie and what they mean in the context of the story being told, especially when those elements may be visible enough to register yet subtle enough for the average moviegoer to (perhaps) not quite realize…this is the sort of stuff that makes for fascinating movie discourse.
In this case, the idea of how a hero or villain’s “home” is presented in a movie, especially now, may be a reflection on our own times.
Again, fascinating, fascinating stuff.
