This week’s MTESS, “Se7en”, drew a great response… but a number of comments touched on how dark a movie it was, and how either they didn’t like the film themselves because of that, or that they’d have trouble recommending the film to others.
Many movies choose to go to the dark side, to varying degrees. Some people love that. Others get put off. It often results in a challenging film… and perhaps, in certain circumstances, hampers the film’s ability to reach a wide audience.
What do you think? When a movie is bleak, like say, “The Road”, or walks on the dark side of humanity, maybe say, like … “Natural Born Killers”, is it a turn off for you? Do you check out? Maybe you’re drawn to that sort of subject matter…
Whatever it is, let us know! How do you feel about “Dark” Movies?
