“… cascade these three ingredients into the melting pot of literature, cinema, television, social media etc. and catalyse them with a story about the death penalty then youu0026#39;re invariably going to concoct as poisonous a brew thatu0026#39;s as acidic as it is caustic, as polarising as any magnet, as contrasting as black and white, night and day, high and low tide. Whatever my views on the subject, I struggled to connect with any of the characters presented (on both sides) as deeply as I would have liked, performances were fine but not outstanding, Iu0026#39;m not sure the story was even that unique or original by todays standards.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe one thing that does irritate however, that societies and cultures fail to resolve the root of the problem, that those with less opportunity continue to lose what little they have and the net that should save people form falling into chaos continually becomes smaller and more threadbare. Ultimately that makes us all culpable for the cause and effect of the world weu0026#39;ve decided to inhabit and the unpalatable scenarios it continues to present us with.”
