The Village

The Village ★★★★

"There are secrets in every corner... Do you not feel it? Do you not see it?"

An achingly sad movie about the dangers of collectively denying the reality of tragedy and suffering and constructing a deceptive mythology of public misinformation for a presumed greater good. Pain is a natural part of progress, and true hope/faith would be allowing people the agency to figure that out for themselves. That this came out in 2004 and people were really like "that's stupid, no one would ever do that" is just... lol.
