This film is very good as a movie, but thats AWEFUL and TERIBLE as a social critic. Only one side of the coin has been shown and that just grind my gears. As a simple movie I could even recomend it, but as a social analisation it just SUCKS.

The film brings us an unilateral view of violence and attempts to make the middle class responsible for it. Expand
