The Business End: Violence in Cinema (2008)

**** (out of 4)

If you're making your way through the Dirty Harry Collection then you'll run into this documentary once you hit THE ENFORCER. This 30 minute documentary takes a look at violence in cinema and rather or not it's to blame for people committing crimes. Clint Eastwood, John Milus and Andrew Robinson are the ones connected to DIRTY HARRY who speak here but we get other interviews from filmmakers and authors who have written about violence in movies. As you'd expect, we start off talking about the changes that happened in the late 60's with stuff like BONNIE AND CLYDE and THE WILD BUNCH. From here we hear a wide range of opinions dealing with crimes committed after watching movies and rather or not filmmakers have a responsibility to not show certain things. If you're a fan of movies and especially movies with violence then you're really going to enjoy this because it really does do a nice job at looking at the subject and being fair to both sides. At only 30 minutes it obviously can't go into great details on the subject but it's certainly an interesting piece. I recently went through all five movies and it's kind of amazing at how violent they really are and especially if you compare them to the horror movies released at the same time and that were being ripped to shreds by the MPAA and being forced to be cut in order to avoid a X rating.
