Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You missed my explantion of identification 'therefore care about what happens to them'. Though I maybe confused the issue by talking about there being no sympathetic characters in LoW.

All drama revolves around conflict - it is the 'major flaws' that drive those conflicts. Conflict itself is of little interest without human fraility in the face of it. (And of course by conflict, I don't mean wars, I mean the collision of different beliefs and notions of reality)

The great writers you list, write about the human condition in a way that is deeply affecting, and uplifting because they offer insight.

I think you are confusing the subject matter with the execution. This is a very good theme in a bad movie.

You can't be me, I'm taken
