How NOT To Handle Theme Mar 30

The best movies use theme to subtly convey a viewpoint, message or idea.

Ideally, a theme should behave like parents watching their child perform on stage — easy to spot when looked for, but not so obvious as to be embarrassing.

The dream team of Stephen Baldwin, Tom Berenger, and yes, Dennis Rodman, challenge that assertion in the unintentionally hilarious film, Cutaway.

See if the message becomes clear to you after watching these clips.
