Conflict As A Driver of Action

The current film J EDGAR is a stark example of unresolved conflict management. Although in his lifetime he revolutionized the FBI and successfully gained enormous power and influence, he was a man conflicted within himself who often projected this internal struggle and hatred upon the landscape of the world in which he lived. He sees threats, violence and conspiracy where none exists. His overwhelming insecurity drives him to manufacture success and take credit from others accomplishments.

Although the film has no narrative tension it does portray a manipulative politician who pursues power under the guise of a rationalized “good deed/mission/fight” Perhaps this is an unwritten law of political life – I hope not.
