The Callow Way – Why We Like Special Forces Movies

25 January 2015 7:06 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week Neil Calloway looks why American Sniper is breaking box office records…

I’ve read a lot about American Sniper since it was released; about the fake plastic babies it uses instead of real children, about how Michael Moore said snipers were cowards (and then backtracked and said he liked the film), about how it might actually influence a real life murder trial, and lots about how much money it has made. I haven’t read anything suggesting why it has made so much money.

Now, it’s not the most complex film. Not the deepest film. Not even the most provocative.
