There’s a pretty great amount of discussion about “Watchmen” going on here in the comments section at the print edition of my review. After a second viewing of the movie this weekend, I have a certain amount of new respect for what the film was trying to achieve. This is definitely a movie that assaults you visually and intellectually and deserves to be seen more than once. Love it or hate it, the ideas that “Watchmen” flirts with (whether you think they’ve been realized or subverted from the book) are impossible to ignore. One discussion point: Why do so many of my liberal-leaning friends find so much common ground in the sociopathic tendencies of Rorschach? Is it because the philosophical waters the film swims in are so murky that Rorschach’s simple brand of justice is the easiest one to peg? Does Zack Snyder’s film flirt with ideas without committing fully to any of them? Wasn’t that the point of the book? Discuss here.
