(an inquest into cruelty)
I have a dream. I want to see an episode in one of the new James Bond movies. Here comes James; he just had killed several really bad guys. One of them he strangled with his bare hands. James had just washed himself, changed into an exquisite suite and now he approaches a stunning woman, half- naked with all that magnificent skin. She already trembles with desire when he offers her to join him in his Paradise room. He turns towards the elevator, sure that she follows him when he hears that word:
The woman looks at him in disgust. She then addresses her companion, a meager man with glasses:
-Those murderers, they are so disgusting and they don't even know that.
What a scene that would be! I bet James would have had a heart attack and with him the whole cruelty- based entertainment industry would have collapsed. The effect would be so profound that maybe they would even delay the Oscars.
Through my tenure in the US, surrounded by the sea of entertainment one thing is permanent- women adore violent and cruel people. The above scenario is as impossible in the US movie industry as an English Royal shown as a bastard. Not a chance.
