It's all a little too real for me sometimes, (well, at least it was the first couple of times I've seen it....it does lose a bit of it's impact on repeated viewings), and I feel sometimes I'm watching three annoying people get killed. It feels very different from a "film" as we've come to expect it.
I have those moments where I feel humanity totally fails as a species and clichéd, "don't want to live on this planet anymore"s. But to call those 3 sacks in BWP realistic depictions of people is too cynical. Even for me. I couldn't sleep at night if I didn't think real people were capable of more than Heather, Josh, and... Matt? The other guy. Stan?
