No offense to Mr. Cawley, but I don't consider him an authority figure. Actually, I don't consider anybody an authority figure whose signature isn't on the checks I deposit at the bank.
Yes, the story is the most important thing -- but the "look" of the film is used to convey the story, as well; otherwise, they might just as well produce this for radio. And considering the "look" they're showing off in the photos, that might not be a bad idea.
I am an economist, so I have professional distrust concerning the accuracy of predictions and forecasts.
We should keep in mind that these are not random pictures, but pictures released for marketing purposes. They are supposed to be thought provoking to make people talk about it.
If you don't intend to watch this movie, you spent quite some time on talking about it although I admit that I like your colourful metaphors
I urge each of you to visit boards other than this one to see what the general timbre of that talk is. I'm an exception here -- but "here"
is the exception to Everywhere Else.
