Find me Guilty

This movie was a travesty and I can’t justify watching it, but—in a desperate attempt to find value in my wasted time—it does give insight into the decline of the American psyche. The movie is about a mobster who defends himself while he and his fellow mob gang are on trail. They are guilty of heinous crimes, yet we are suppose to feel sympathy with the criminals and rejoice at their acquittal (yes, that’s a spoiler, sue me). What does it say about our culture when the bad guys are the heroes?
