Psychopath, certainly one of the favorite characters cinema as a lens focuses the dark secrets of the human psyche. Sometimes, as in a distorting mirror reflects social unrest.
Attractiveness” psychopatycznemu complex, contradictory character gives the character traits, in addition to – as it is called Kevin Dutton, author of the book “The Wisdom of psychopaths” – “triumvirate of basic features – ruthlessness, mental focus and charm” would add confidence and consistency in the operation of above-average the ability to manipulate. Unit oscillating between the extremes of human nature, seducing the viewer, arousing admiration and awe intellectual potential cruelty and ruthlessness.
Dutton argues that religious fanaticism possessed spiritual guru has kind of deviation similar to serial killers. Apparently the film makers share their insight, since this type of character storm broke into the theater and densely populated genre horror, mysteries and psychological thrillers. MacManus brothers friendly ( ” The Boondock Saints ” ) with a prayer on the lips of murdering mafia thugs. Irish-Catholic roots reveal themselves in the belief that they were chosen by God to prepare the ground for the return of the Messiah. Greater creativity and independence in setting the foundations of a new, secular faith has John Bunting ( ” Snowtown ” ), which is a suburb of Adelaide started a revolution aimed at ridding the world of pedophiles and – pardon le mot – “Pedal” (for John and his followers is actually synonyms). Picture of Justin Kurzela , supposedly based on fact, has realistic aspirations. However, monsters, using culturally-happy religious symbols as supports their actions, they have at the movies largely outnumbered. Their practice is characterized by theatrical gestures, the presence of codes and puzzles with which to communicate with the world (and especially with their detectives tropi?cymi). Victorian longing gives the hero series ” Following ” , who is obsessed with the works of Allan Poe , for his murder is an act of creativity, almost mystery. In an episode of ” Luther , ” there is a murderer who wish to return to the world of theatrical magic show. His costume is the mask of the legendary Spring-Heel Jack, a scene replace him ubiquitous CCTV cameras.
The seven deadly sins and the work of Milton were the inspiration for a serial killer in the thriller Fincher ( ” Seven ” ), a card game the most famous figure of the Joker for Batman’s enemy. In version Burton stood out grotesque elegance, with Nolan while – dezynwoltur? cruel, but in both painted blood-red lipstick smile hides layers of pain. Demanding to decipher the cultural codes on one level direct their attention toward the terrifying realization that genius can easily be used for evil purposes that creation and destruction are two sides of the same coin. On the second – self-reflexive act as the film matter, say a human, perpetually unsatisfied desire for fiction, from which even the serial killer is not free.
Najbardziej emblematic figures of cinema owes psychopaths but not their intellectual uk?adankom, but personal charisma. Perhaps psychoanalytic interpretation with all edypalnymi complexes or fear of cannibalism already smacks of a mouse, but ambiguous Norman Bates ( ” Psycho ” ) and demonic Hannibal Lecter ( ” Silence of the Lambs ” ) is still the first associations that arise in the minds of moviegoers on the slogan “psychopath” . Getting to know someone on the border of humanity is an opportunity to sight in itself displaced in search of casual dark sides of personality. Lecter, affecting more and more on the Agent Starling, directed mainly curiosity, the desire to umilenia the prison life, worse when the psychopath taking the honor for active learning. Selected “student” is never random, is someone who definitely deserves a cruel lesson and will be able to appreciate it. Inspired by Bill corpses strewn path to revenge is for the Black Mamba ( ” Kill Bill ” ) an odd way to come to terms with the fact that it is also a born killer and a loving mother. Maternal instinct discovers Eva ( ” We Need to Talk About Kevin ” ) because of his psychopathic son, because the boy is more cruel, the more reluctant he first woman involved in his upbringing. Kevin, rozsmakowany every perfidious gesture, shows her mother that giving in to peer pressure, it has lost its nature, has sold his soul demon conformity. Psychopathic person feels great weakness of his victim and is able to harass her with abandon. Everything he does, Kevin, is a demonstration of superiority, but an observer of his actions makes her mother – the only person in your thinking otoczeniu.
Okrutne combine science with the Joker and Kevin anonymous sniper in ” Phone ” . The first student has chosen defender of social order – Batman. Second – hypocritical, self-confident climber, forcing him to confess the truth about her kr?tactwach. All three perfectly reflect the folk wisdom that “the devil is not selfish.” Kevin gestures after finishing the slaughter of rising triumphantly hands before an imaginary audience and the Joker burning up money may seem pointless. However, it is not measurable benefit, but the spectacle is at stake in this game. When asked his mother: “What’s the point?” Kevin says: “There is no point, that’s the point.”
Social confessors psychopathic characters do not only cater to the fascination recesses of the human psyche. The character seemingly contradictory harming features – soundness of mind and madness – well in the cinema as a public exponent of fear. This aspect of the film is deposited in the pronunciation of particular historical moment. In ” Apocalypse Now , ” a novel by Joseph Conrad gets the leaders turned wild context of the Vietnam War, which allows metaphorically talk about the madness of war and the hybrid “kingdom” Colonel Kutz, made ??up of U.S. troops and the local population indicates impossible to mitigate the conflict between cultures. In ” Natural Born Killers ” crimes committed by Micky and Mallory are shown in the form of sensational reportage, the evening news and sitcom. This critical look at the culture in the age of television, according to Oliver Stone’s audience scandal and blood line has inordinate influence on the prevalence of social violence. Futurological deviant history, love of a passionate classical music ( ” A Clockwork Orange ” ) is an expression of a pessimistic vision of culture in general – a fragile and volatile, completely devoid of power to change the world.
Film psychopath is the apologist and all forms of destabilization, and always in opposition to the social order, respect for human rights and ethics. The essence of higher need not embrace the reality yet – it creates it. Deviant mind worships mathematical theory of chaos, feeding the idea that the owner of the world’s igniter future processes. The perception is formed at the intersection of pride, confidence and zafiksowania the only legitimate truth. Anton Chigurh ( ” No Country for Old Men ” ) believes that his unseen soul directs the activities of the world of which he is an ardent exponent. He saves people, showing them what part of the world are. With embarrassment the fate of any attempt to atone, laughing with an appeal to his conscience and free will. It’s shaped like a psychopath Protestant saint, who drew all the conclusions of the doctrine of predestination – if a man was on his way, a coin, showing him or kill him or not, expresses only what and so relentless. Harvey Dent ( ” The Dark Knight ” ) tossed a coin with slightly different reasons, did not care what directs its movement. Throw was just a disappointed idealist gesture that indulging in killing, pays a cruel world. The case for him: “objective, free of bias and fair”. The Joker and the only justice is life without rules, because the rules are suspect and unreliable. His “social experiment in which he handed two teams >> << >> detonators to blow up the enemy <<” wanted to prove that people are moral only if they do it free. Although the final catastrophe does not occur, the mere fact that the two ferries passengers considered his reasoning is sufficiently grim lesson.
Cho? ” guards ” were incarcerated in particular during the Cold War, the historic conflict between East and West is an excuse to tie rather than the voice of the generation intrigue. The dialogue between the two psycho-heroes in masks and capes long – Comedian and Ozymandiaszem – is a universal discourse on the possibilities of social engineering. The first – a murderer and rapist inherent smile – the system does not believe in repairing the world, convinced that even a superhero must necessarily serve some vested interests. But it’s Ozzy, led the idea of pacifism, the salvation of mankind invents a project that transcends even a cynic such as The Comedian. Is fanaticism, even in the name of right idea, it causes more harm than good? Is the room had to be paid millions of lives does not share the fate of the child accidentally poured out with the bathwater? – Seem to ask the author.
G?osy on the different stages of the development of capitalism and consumer culture can be heard in ” American Psycho ” and ” Underground circle ” . The first relates to the era of preserving appearances of life for others. Young japiszon Patrick, changing the serial killer by night, is like a schizophrenic mind of a man of success, torn between the need to continuously demonstrate its position as the fatigue superficiality of existence. However, the hero of ” Underground circle ” is representative of the era of social alienation, in which consumers are addicted to collecting things even lost the instinct suggesting to them how to achieve prestige. Locked in their houses of prayer secular rise to more expensive items. This paradox reflects the mind of the hero suffering from insomnia and amnesia, so that he can make his alter ego. The emergence of Tyler Durden is a desperate cry for help and therapy at the same time. If Eric Parker was a serial killer, ” Cosmopolis ” trilogy would make a significant voice on late capitalism, where branded items lost their quality, their value is only the logo, and the pursuit of prestige is expressed in an accelerated process of buy-throw-buying. Parker, watching the rising stock market trading posts, embodies the analog sunset, the material world, announces the total digitization, carrying dangers that have not yet fully see. Although the trailer viralowej culture, founded on viral marketing, a serial ” Following ” , but unfortunately, its implementation leaves much to be desired.

Z of everyday life often draw the conclusion that the madman can not be right; film psychopathic characters happy playing with this stereotype. Even if social responsibility is a strange notion, because he says that all of us are guilty, but none of the individual. Two enthusiasts in white gloves with evangelical named Peter and Paul plays with this paradox in ” Funny Games ” , harassing the average family. Its members literally did not do anything wrong, but sinned against the surrounding reality, the pursuit of a comfortable life, ensconced in the world as in his small white house. Zeitgeist era are opportunism. With only a few minor procedures (eg, removal of violence outside the frame), the director of the perpetrators removed the blame for the torture and charged her inquisitive eye of the viewer. It is the expectation of sensationalism, drama and cinema observer blood is the main driver of two psychopaths. While the characters in the film Haneke puts the viewer as if on call, making it a co-founder of events, it couple in love in ” tourists ” invites you on a kind of crusade against ordinary citizens iniquity small northern England. During the journey, events begin to take place different from the expected path by the viewer. Criminal lovers are in part a neat illustration of the theory of Joshua Green, speaking about the fact that psychopathy is a state devoid of sharp boundaries, giving the graduate. In this context, the well-known saying that “the devil is in the detail ‘takes on new meaning.
” Funny Games ” destroying the magic of cinema, making it become co-creators of the created world. ” tourists ” make the viewer more of a sort of jilted bride at the altar – frustrated and confused, with a sense of failure and non-compliance with the ritual promise. Perhaps viewers for years living in close relationship with psychopathic characters easier to accept sophisticated forms of cruelty than the ordinariness of life in a matter of entering unceremoniously movie about psychopathic killers.
