Thursday Movie Picks - Seven Deadly Sins: Pride
We've hit our final Deadly Sin edition from Wandering Through The Shelves! These were very challenging and fun. At this point, we all have to be proud of what we came up with on the previous weeks? So let's talk about pride. Here are three films I enjoy that have characters that need to overcome it.
1) American History X
Edward Norton's Derek is a racist. He's pride comes with being white and when he's sent to prison for murder he's forced to confront that pride head on and re-think his entire garbage existence. This film is hard to watch, but it's very well done.
2) The Last King of Scotland
It takes a bit of pride in what you do to take the leap Nicholas does in this film. To practice medicine in a foreign country, hit on his boss' wife, then eventually become close do Idi Amin and have an affair with his wife too. I love this movie. Much like American History X, it's brutal at times, but it works so well.
3) Beauty and the Beast
Prides like Gaston
Glorified like Gaston
Has an ego so far and wide like Gaston
As a specimen yes he's infuriating...
God I love that song. Perfect for Disney's ultimate dude bro.
