Today's Daily Kos article - Comment Here
Full disclosure: I found the Freud quote in a New Yorker movie review of Infinity Wars. Kudos to Anthony Lane the author who really knows his Freud. Then I found a PDF of the entire paper. This is from The New Yorker: The person who prophesied this film, more than a century ago, is Freud. In 1914, he wrote, “Even dire criminals and comic heroes captivate us within the context of the arts by dint of the narcissistic rigor with which they keep at bay anything tending to diminish their ego.” Exactly. Iron Man in a nutshell. Or Thanos. And don’t even get me started on Doctor Strange, whose rigor extends to the curve described by his cowlick. I was as pumped as the next fan when I read the cast list of the film, and yet, in the event, it suffers from the same uneasy bonhomie that infects every supergroup. All-star spectacle it may be, but it’s still like listening to two and a half hours of Tin Machine. http://www.sakkyndig.com/psykologi/artvit/freud1925.pdf
