Murder by Proxy: How America Went Postal (2010)

Emil Chiaberi

Runtime: 73 min

Ako ste voleli kontraverznu igru Postal, jednu od najbrutalnijih igara ikada napravljenih, evo prilike da saznate šta se to zapravo u stvarnom životu krije iza ovog opravdano ozloglašenog naziva.

"Murder By Proxy: How America Went Postal is a documentary film that examines the phenomenon of spree killing, particularly in a workplace, that became known in the United States as “going postal”. The film argues that the phenomenon originated in the United States Postal Service as a result of hostile work environment following the Postal Reorganization Act of 1971 and then spread to the rest of society.

Filmmaker Emil Chiaberi presents a point of view that spree killings became widespread in the United States as a result of a major socio-economic shift that began during the Reagan era. The film identifies corporate greed, income inequality, diminished job security, excessive consumerism and nearly total indebtedness as contributing factors to the sense of injustice that fuels murderous rage of some individuals. Notably, gun control issue is completely absent from the film."
