I saw this review of Watchmen and feel it exemplifies my project topic of everyone having a different view on art because it takes the time to look at the movie from a psychological standpoint. The article talks about the motivations of the characters Ozymendias and Rorschach and believes them to be polar opposite characters, and yet their motivations make them similar:
“The weirdly arch-conservative Rorschach patrols New York City’s mean streets like a deranged guardian angel, while Veidt’s abstruse liberalism makes him feel superior to those he would supposedly save. Rorschach believes in killing the guilty to save the innocent; Veidt believes it is acceptable to kill innocents to save others from the guilty.”
This is just one view of what the movie is really about but it shows just how a work of art can be interpreted.
