Oscar Wilde once wrote that “Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life.” Current events have proven he was spot on right!
I have worked my way thru the John Wick movies, the Fast and the Furious series, and the various Mad Max’s. The LSW (Long Suffering Wife) never understood why I watched them and enjoyed them. I explained to her that they were actually fantasies, choreographed “Gun Fu” ballets, and super fun to watch.
These days, the news coverage of ongoing clashes in Lebanon and Israel has ruined those slick action movies for me. Forever. Or at least until there’s peace and the violence returns to being just choreographed fantasies that are fun to watch.
