Crackpot anti-science
What a crackpot film. Its central thesis is that western media depictions of masculinity are responsible for social violence. it also contends, in 1999, that violence would increase. Actually from the 1990's murder rates in the US fell -- for a generation. And it is profoundly anti science. The data show that for 200,000 years, since the advent of homosapiens, and likely for millions of years since Australopithecus ancestors, about 80% of females overproduced while only between 30% to 40% of males did. We know why: because fought one another, individual and in organized groups. The peer reviewed science in aDNA ancient DCA studies show this, and in fact there are consistently more male skeletons showing weopn injury and violent death in individual and mass graves compared to female skeletons. Virtually all violence among hunter gather tribes still in existence today ids male on male as well. Are they watching too much Brando? literally the entire basis of claims in this film are the opposite of what the science shows, and the conclusions are absurd as a result
