INCREDIBLY INSIGHTFUL analysis of TalmudVision’s “Forest Gump.” I didn’t like the movie then, but didn’t know exactly why.
5:05 “This film… actively sought to promote this idea that we have no free will, and takes away any sense of responsibility people might have for how their lives or how the world has turned out. They didn’t have any control over any of it. They were simply like feathers that were floating around in the wind while the world just happened to them. ‘Life is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get.'”
Life is meaningless.
14:05 “By listening to the female force in his life he has broken free from the chains literally placed on him by the patriarchs.”
20:05 “They’re accessing the trauma, and then patting it on the head, and saying ‘don’t worry, we’re all just feathers in the wind. We have no free will. Nothing matters….”
27:30 Lieut. Dan defies and defeats God! Horrible scene!
34:55 “And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how you expertly undermine a society.”
A friend, Andrew Kelley commented on Facebook:
Finally got his women after he was a millionaire. She a single mother with a sexual decadence consequence disease. She slept with him one time and yes it was his child. Whatever. He then raised the child without a mother as she gave herself to everyone else. Yes, she was abused by her father, and addicted to soul numbing drugs but the child was conceived out of a sense of obligation. The movie did depict the order out of chaos theme and Forrest being blessed for being obedient to his government. It was awkward.
