The State of American Movies
by Mark Hendrickson

Commentary

Do movies shape culture or does culture shape movies? The influence goes in both directions, but I think predominant cultural values have the upper hand.

Movies may introduce, promote, or accentuate new fashions (linguistic, behavioral, sartorial, etc.) but the movie-going public retains a crucial leverage over moviemakers: the profit motive.

One of the first principles of successful business in a market economy is, give customers what they want. So, while Hollywood often pushes the envelope in challenging, even assaulting, traditional sensibilities, moviegoers’ purse strings act as a cultural ballast, impelling movie-makers to infuse their stories with certain bedrock cultural values.

The movies that my wife and I have seen at theaters this year make me feel optimistic about our underlying cultural health. Obviously, this is not a scientific study, since we’ve only gone to the movies nine or ten times this year, and naturally our movie selection reflects our tastes. Among other things, that means no horror movies. It always amazed me back when we had video stores that the largest selection consisted of gory slasher/horror movies. I’m sure filmmakers are still catering to whatever demographic finds such fare entertaining, but that’s not us.

Neither do we patronize violent movies in which the hero is a remorseless angel embarked on a vengeful rampage, such as John Wick, Rambo, or Liam Neeson’s latest role. While the worst of the worst suffer for their sins in consonance with our American sense of justice, the unrelenting grimness of the protagonists doesn’t appeal to us. We won’t see “The Joker” either. It may or may not provide some insight into psychologically damaged individuals, but it titillates with violence and mayhem, so “no thanks.”

Following are some of the movies we’ve seen. ...
