Maybe it’s the scotch speaking, but I hadn’t seen a movie that moved me this much. There were movies which scared me (Das Experiment and Requiem for a dream), movies which scarred me for life (countless), and movies which made me sad (Life is beautiful), but none made me feel the way Vinyard brothers did.
The neo-Nazi movement, the violence, raising middle fingers to authority- they didn’t impress me much. There are a truckload of other movies based on the same issues. It’s the relationship between brothers, and the way Derek changes when he realizes his actions have consequences on his family- made me think about the way I’ve been handling myself.
If you have a younger sibling- or any one who looks up to you- please watch this movie. Gives a new perspective to the way you behave.
It’s been a day since I watched the movie, and one question keeps bubbling up: have I been a good brother?
Happy New year, Everyone.
