Movie Review -- 'Seymour: An Introduction' is a Master Class in Life

Seymour_1

Have you ever noticed how the bad guys in generic action movies tend to listen to classical music? For an old, goateed sociopath on the verge of launching nukes at Washington or slaughtering innocents for his own financial gain, there’s nothing better than some Chopin or Bach to calm the nerves. Usually it’s on an exquisite antique turntable, which shows he’s a Jack White-level connoisseur. Sometimes he even leans his head back and conducts with his fingers. He’s really into this stuff. The idea (besides how everyone needs to stop ripping off Die Hard) is that art, specifically high art, doesn’t make people better. Reading Milton won’t inspire you...
