“There are movies where we are interested in seeing people’s lives without agreeing with what they’re doing.” – Natalie Portman
In movies, there are always good and bad characters. Most of the time, you support the good people in the movie, but once in awhile, you kind of feel something for that evil man or woman, even if you do not fully agree with how they behave or what they are doing. Bad guys are only human and they might have very interesting personalities. Especially when a movie character is not thoroughly bad, you can create a bond with it.
Sometimes you find a little bit of yourself in these evil characters and therefore you can understand why they behave in a certain way. Perhaps you have done one of the evil things the bad man or woman has done and you feel exactly what they go through. Even though we usually disapprove of cheating, envy, greed, etc., we can also understand where it comes from. We try to stop ourselves from doing it, because it is socially not accepted, but that does not mean that we have not thought about it.
