Had the chance to watch `My Father's Angel' a few days ago. It is very similar in genre and content to other movies like `Before The Rain', `Beautiful People', `Earth' (all foreign flicks) etc etc., and even the American movie `American History X' which all magnify crimes against humanity and this unfortunate cycle of base human vices like power, selfishness, contempt, irrational hate, egoistic behavior which all lend a hand in the sad use of religion and other philosophies to make fellow human beings miserable. Instead of reaching out for a state of tranquility and happiness which is why most of these philosophies/religions are born in the first place - to appease the human soul, uplift the human condition, and make the condition of living a bit easier. If man were not rational and self – conscious I wonder how worse off we would actually be, and in times yet to come!
