In the Company of Men

As a white male I’ve seen this movie before.  Well, not necessarily this movie but these guys.  I remember seeing them in locker rooms when I played sports  While in college I tended bar at a bar frequented by businessmen that were in town for work – those guys were everywhere.  And on and on and on.  I think my favorite parts of the film are the very end.

  1.  While there are different kinds of those guys they all have the same traits (last scene)
  2. Those guys have no loyalty

But those guys are not limited to misogyny.  We see those guys today when the enemy is immigrants, people of another race, people of another religion, etc.  It very much reminds me of the song “Us and Them” by Pink Floyd.
