i despise films where little or no depth of character is given to victims,

I know what you mean. I haven't seen it, but a few years ago everyone was talking about how brilliant the film "doubt" is. Its about a priest accused of child abuse. From what I've heard, first it doesn't really get into what an awful thing that really is. Second, the film never bothers to get the childrens perspective of what is going on, not even the alleged victim. Its all based on understanding the accused perp rather than the children. Like I said I haven't seen it so maybe I have a skewed perspective, but it doesn't sound like the kind of film I'd be able to sit through without throwing something.
Like a spent gladiator
crawling in the colosseum dust
who can count on his remaining limbs
all the people he can trust.
Like the one who stands behind him
cheering him on
Estatic when he stands defiant,
wild with abandon when he's gone

just stay alive.
do whatever you need to.
you are worth it.
