The Scandal (2019), by Jay Roach - Review

A current and controversial themed film that generates dialogue and readings beyond a first viewing.

The film tells a story based on real events about a sound case of sexual harassment on the well-known American television network Fox. One of its directors and founders, Roger Ailes, markets requesting sex to the most attractive employees in exchange for a successful professional career. Here a moral dilemma arises as a result of a capitalist society with ethical values ​​in demolition. On the one hand, it reflects the lack of scruples of a media mogul who believes that with money and power he can do everything. As his mentality derives from the Lutheran and liberal culture, much to the use in the nerve centers of power in the United States, he is not even afraid of the punishment that could be given, for example, by a Catholic God (since the values ​​inherited from the predator Sexual have as basic pillars: power and money, these being the abundant justification for any wrongdoing). His modern god is that one, the one who enlightens the wasp more blond, with the most bluish look and with the most houses chachis of the orb Sorry to put me in a shirt of eleven rods, but when a culture is based on the material, on the expired and on the fleeting (as happened in ancient Rome), these things happen and bring consequences that go even beyond sexual abuse such as, for example, the alarming absence of key elements inherent to the human being such as dignity, honesty, honesty or education. For this reason, the film seems correct to me in the sense that it has a second reading: it is the perfect reflection of a seemingly beautiful empire that smells like sewer and is in dizzying decline. On the other hand, there is the dilemma of the employees: whether or not they pass through the hoop to get what they want. I return to the same thing: if that society had strong ethical values, they (victims of the wrapping culture) would be more likely to say no, even if they were tempted by success and money, since their dignity would be worth much more than a handful of dollars and a promotion. This is learned in the crib, in a well-molded family and not in a rotten environment of inane appearances, which is only image, dollars and rheumatic composure. Hence its three protagonists (Charlize Theron, Margot Robbie and Nicole Kidman) are very well chosen: intelligent, ambitious, beautiful, blonde and with the celestial iris. A perfect personification of the professional and successful woman who has been humbly humiliated by the reproach caused by an unscrupulous predator.

It does very well.

A current movie

work that could be described as remarkable.
