A Dark Reflection full movie review - A film that raises public awareness
In our world of capitalism in which greedy corporations seek to meet their year-on-year profit margins, collateral damage is regarded as acceptable risks.
We, as the public, often pay no thought to the potential consequences and risks of placing our trust in such corporations. Indeed, the public often have no choice in some of the things that are used on a daily basis. This film deals with one of those things that is called flying.
It is concerning how little regard there is for collateral damages (in this case, the health and safety of the paying customer). Especially in light of the fact that the problem is known. And yet, what can the public do to force a change in regulations when the regulations are not set up with the customer in mind. It is disturbing that there has been no move to take any form of action (
The film's style and atmosphere is similar to many British-made political conspiracy thriller. It conveys a message without the need for theatrics or a melodramatic soundtrack. In this regards it is well done. My only criticism was the unnecessary introduction which served no purpose but to give a background introduction to the protagonist.
There need to be more films like this that promote public awareness, and help the struggle against multi-conglomerates that rely on us to meet their profit margins and yet, place so little importance on the customer's well-being. It is exactly because they can afford (and are allowed) to do so that this issue still remains.
