Seems a lot of the critics are hating on it, but I think it’s because they’re sheep, and aren’t able to perceive the kind of “high status” way of displaying emotions and relating to other people the way they do in this movie.  They say there’s no character development.. I think it’s because they can’t recognize, or relate to someone who’s not fundamentally weak, or always vulnerable, or flawed in some way. It’s an all star cast, so these people are used to walking the walk, and most people would just never recognize it.

Anyways.. the movie was ALSO interesting because (spoiler alert) everyone had their one driving force.. the thing they cared most about in life.. and they were ALL taken down by the one thing they couldn’t/didn’t foresee.. a bonafide sociopath. Took them ALL down. And it got pretty damn ugly.

Some in the movie were motivated by greed, some for women, and some simply for love, but one was the most dangerous one of all.. to satisfy the blunt insatiable “simple” need to hunt and take.

This has been something of a topic of conversation with the RSD circle recently, because of recent events that affected some of us personally, as well as a vblog recently put up concerning people’s “win/motication” criteria.

Here’s the trailer:

    I haven’t seen this film yet but I’m curious to know the roles played by the characters and who is portrayed as the Alpha.

    Do you mean by ““high status” way of displaying emotions and relating to other people” by not being in demand, or giving a fuck about whatever happen if you express yourself ?
