Lately, Hollywood produces films that feature some trapping of progressive thought or feminist angst, when they are not producing films that garner “lame” as its own genre. Generally I watch older films or films that tend to avoid, if not downplay, some of these aspects. Fortunately for me, I discovered a film that is distinctly un-Hollywood and is downright politically incorrect.
The film is All Is Lost and it stars Robert Redford. Here’s the trailer:
The main thrust of the story is a man alone on a boat in the middle of the ocean and struggling to survive disaster (I won’t say any more). It is simplistic, straightforward, and beautiful in its blunt story telling.
It is a story of a man who persists in the face of the odds.
There are no women in this film. There are no fat, angry feminist telling him what he is doing wrong and deliberately trying to provoke a fight while thinking it’s all cute. There are no power-boss ladies tromping up the steps of their power and lustfully enjoying the emasculation of the men around them. There are no light, wallpaper girls who fall in love with shy, metrosexual boys who have yet to find puberty. There are no female super-toughs. Thank God there are no female super-toughs.
At the same time, there are no overblown macho men who smoke cigars while shooting endless bad guys with dual guns while flying a helicopter carrying a tank. There are no street-wandering adolescent man-boys who fall in love with those shy, stumbling girls.
Here is a man who is nothing more or less than what he is. He is confident, adventurous, and courageous. His decisiveness and self-control are constant throughout every ordeal he faces.
This film is what a man needs to be. It is not what progressives want men to be, nor what the gaytopia crowd wants men to be, nor what feminists want men to be. Our Man is his own man.
The West needs men like Our Man.
If only women would let Our Man be a man.
