    Northing wrong with movies as literature for the masses. Because they have to make a dollar or two, the script writers have to make it clear and easily

      to make a dollar or two, the script writers have to make it clear and easily
      understood. "Fight Club" comes to mind.

      There is anything wrong with examining existential themes via
      entertainment. And although movies have in great part replaced
      literature for the masses, they aren't void of discussion material viz
      hero and anti-hero; situational ethics and morality; economic survival;
      and certainly death. I recently had the pleasure of watching the remake
      of the movie, 3:10 To Yuma, a morality play of America's mythological
      West. I thought the conclusion well thought out in terms of how
      situation presents and choices are made in the real world, which was
      the point of the story.
