Absolute Moral Authority

Because plain old moral authority just wasn’t good enough — a mesablue production

A fun read

Posted by Wickedpinto on March 8, 2011

15 conspiracy movies that don’t fall apart at the end.

The pic’s are good, and the analysis is a fun read. One of the things I notice about the picks is that a lot of them are extremely slow moving and arduous movies to endure. Like “the Parallax View,” which is the first pick, that movie seems to last forever, yet it might be because I hate warren beatty and really only liked him him bugsy.

One of the picks, blowout, is one of my favorite movies because the ending is kinda powerful, and satisfies the classical formula of ending as you started. For a more current example, I would include salt. Though Salt is a good old action flic, the underlying conspiracy is fun to keep up with, it’s not all about action, there are revelations and dark corners being explored, granted, in terms of it being a flash bang action flic, but still good.

    Of that list, I’ve only seen Parallax View and The Wicker Man. I don’t remember much about the plot of the former film, but I do recall that it was very atmospheric. Ditto about Warren Beatty. He’s not a great actor. But in Bugsy he was good, because the character was a bit like him – a narcissist!

    The Wicker Man is a really good film. And it’s much better than the recent remake with Nicholas Cage in it.

  2. Give “Blowout” A try matt.
