Rising sign of the Age of Englightenment: used to be, revenge 
movies like Billy Jack allowed us to vicariously vent our rage as 
we watched the gentle hero go justifiably postal. Now, revenge 
flix show how debilitating violence is on the perpetrator, no 
matter how justifiable his revenge may be.

The Academy acknowledged this theme by nominating 
Munich rather than A History of Violence.
