This Saturday: CRIME & PUNISHMENT

The popularity of romanticizing the criminal lifestyle hasn't been lost on movie makers; film industries worldwide love to portray the inner workings of criminal organizations. Perhaps this fascination is due to the fact that identifying with criminals has a cathartic function, allowing us to vicariously live through the crimes of others so that we don't feel compelled to engage in them ourselves; or perhaps it's because in most crime movies the criminal eventually gets caught, thus confirming our natural sense of justice. Fortunately we can leave such theories to film analysis courses and simply enjoy crime movies because they show us an underside of our society we rarely see first-hand from a comfortable distance.
