Subject: Movies that seem outdated but are actually relevant to modern society

Written By: HeyJealousy on 06/29/17 at 8:01 pm

I'll start with NIGHT MOVES from 1975, about an emotionally detached private eye (played by Gene Hackman) in a crumbling marriage who is hired to investigate the disappearance of a washed-up, morally challenged actress's rebellious teenage daughter.

What's so relevant about it is the vapidness that persists among the top celebrities to this date, and how many people pursue their dreams with hope only to be greeted with disillusionment. The main protagonist wanted to be a private eye to fight crime like Superman, but wound up being a slave to his dead-end job that ultimately cost him his marriage and then some.
Highly recommend. 9.8/10.
