How many is too many? At least 5 over a period of two days which is way too many.
Who are "they?" They look sheepish or traumatized. They can't look at you even indirectly. Constantly looking down at the ground or their shoes. In the context of the movie, a
traumatized version of Newt Scamander who also has aspy eyes.
The movie Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them might have intentionally used actors
with resemblances to real New Yorkers of 1920's. Sen. Shaw in the clip resembles Mayor
Jimmy Walker at least in looks. Walker never became a senator and was thrown out of office
as NYC Mayor in 1929 by then NYS Governor, Franklin D. Roosevelt. Credence, who Shaw
calls a freak, more than resembles a young Buster Keaton, the silent era comedic genius.
Voight might be a stand-in for William Randolph Hearst the right wing newspaper owner and America's first media tycoon who over extended himself in real estate by buying up mansions
and castles. His newspapers of the pre-war 1930's ran unopposed columns by Hitler and Göring.
It's undoubtedly a coincidence that Voight's character in the movie gives a fund raiser
for his son the Senator. The fund raiser doesn't turn out so well. Sen. Shaw is killed by
Credence in his no longer repressed Obscuret malevolent form. So much for fiction.
In stranger than fiction reality John Voight the actor gave the introduction to Trump's
Washington DC inaugural. Followed by newly sworn President Trump who then
gave his by now infamous inaugural speech depicting America's landscape as something
from a Mad Max movie. He sounded like someone rehearsing for an RT broadcast. The
Russian international TV network that typically specializes in Americans ripping their
own country. Or maybe someone looking forward to an Trump RT Newsmax National
Enquirer Breitbart Alex Jones "News" Network. Now let us not get carried away into
nether regions of science fiction. Such a thing could never happen. Blizzard of lies anyone?
And let's hope the updated version of Credence (in whatever Steve Bannon form he takes) has
acquired some restraint should he or his metaphysical equivalent seek to make fantasy into reality. We wouldn't want anything even symbolically similar befall our beloved President DJ.
