Heavy themes, tender moments
30 May 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Johnny (Chris William Martin of "Felicity") is a sociopath, but his charisma is so overwhelming that it is easy to see how easily people can overlook this in a leader. He is strong, powerful, and -- most alarmingly -- tender and loving to his followers. In one moment he may be encouraging them to humiliate themselves, in the next goading them into acts of extreme violence against one another, and then making it all better by bestowing (apparently sincere) affection on his groupies. Johnny is a Hitler, a Mao, a rock star, a Charles Manson, and a messianic martyr rolled into one package. In other environments than the streets, he might have become a politician, an entertainer, a military leader, president of a Yale secret society, or the dark shadow of J. Pierpont Finch, rising from mailroom clerk to corporate command. This is one powerful movie!
