Face of Evil…those words present differently to everyone.
For a four year old? What does a four year old see as evil? Maybe, just scary, which is plenty.
For teens? Evil? Would they recognize true evil beyond “American Horror Story”?
Ah, but for adults…adults see evil in its many forms. Evil comes in the form of amoral, sociopaths, psychopaths, and every other “path” in the world.
In the years between 2000 and 2008, evil sneaked in silently, in the back door quite literally. It tiptoed in, stealing homes through mortgages, fraudulent and devastating.
In this movie, The Big Short, historical events grab viewers and shake them like a dirty puppy, foisting humor and heartless greed.
Names are real, what they did is real, what happened is real. What these evil men slammed down in paper volumes of numbers, economically spread across the world, nearly causing entire countries to collapse.
Faces of Evil leap from the screen and will remain in viewers’ minds.
At least it does in mine.
