Re the Film Version of “Atlas Shrugged”

I need to see Atlas Shrugged, Part 1 (2011) a second time before I can make a suitable judgment about it.  I believe it to be weak in many ways, but as a motion picture it’s also unique and possibly acceptable.  (I have no interest in reading the Ayn Rand novel.)

“The business man is only tolerable so long as his gains can be held to bear some relation to what, roughly and in some sense, his activities have contributed to society.”  So wrote Lord Keynes, and the U.S. government in Atlas Shrugged, Part 1 must be espousing this view and seeing American businessmen as not contributing enough to society.  Hence it has turned to an anti-business crackdown.

I’ll see the film again much later, on DVD.
