Vigilante groups offer the thrills of war without the risks, hardships or obligations of actual military service. One of those thrills, of course, is the promise of violence. Another is rank.

Thanks, great indeed! Made me appreciate the movie a lot more too.

Idealized masculinity as not the Alpha male, but instead an embodiment of “Actionable, radical empathy.” :+1:

The best one-line review I’ve heard of it: Everything Everywhere All At Once is the movie Dr.Strange and the Multiverse of Madness should have been.
