"The didacticism in that is blatant: the corporate machine is bad, kick its ass! "

Is that didactic, or more of an opinion expressed in art. Didactic is meant to instruct. To me there is a subtle difference. Or is the message more like even the suits and ties amongst you can be monsters. Wolves in sheeps clothing...people for the most part tend to feel that a suit and tie gives some sort of credibility to a person. Why dress up and ax murdering pedophile before you cart him off to court, or don a suit and tie to stand before a judge for a traffic offense? Or to try and and sell me something?  Maybe I'm off base with the coorporate idea although the bands court issues biographically lean that way. Maybe the nightmare is that even what we should be most able to trust in is in reality what we should fear the most.

Instruct to kick ass. An immature way for me to put it in words but what I meant was that the whole `Jared kicks corporate chimp`s butt` thing was a soft version of the sort of propaganda put forward by punk rock (perhaps?). I was thinking of punk rock as didactic art and how the message in Hurricane (or one of the messages) is didactic in a similar way. But you may be right. It may just be an expression of their opinion/view of the corporate world as they are not directly instructing us to boycott it.

The dressing up to court thing is highly psychological. It`s aimed at the juries who are more likely to acquit someone dressed up, shaved and with a nice hair cut than someone who `looks` like a criminal. Unfortunately, that is one of the reasons why corporate/white collar criminals are more likely to get away with crime. People just don`t see them as criminals. `They wear nice suits, why would they be criminals?` is the view of the general public, a dangerous view.

Now don`t even get me started on the people who are trying to sell you stuff lol. `No, thanks` is my favourite phrase sometimes.

I like your last sentence. So true (in my opinion).

Actually, I thought that scene was supposed to be a tribute to those soldiers, not something disrespectful.  
As a retired and disabled military veteran, I agree with you. I felt no disrespect at all and as a matter of fact, teared up when I saw it.

Amazing video to my opinion, way different than all the other videos out there.
Bit strange and creepy as well, but still amazing.

I just watched this for the first time (I know, I know) and omg. I think my head is spinning in the best possible way - its beautiful. And thought provoking.

And for a shallow moment, gah, Jared shirtless through the whole video? Yes. Please.

I need to go watch it again to digest it.

He seems very passionate about his work, and you can't help getting caught up in that.

I cannot recall if this particular topic has been brought up or discussed in this thread before *if so, my apologies*, but just a short while ago today I re-watched the explicit version of Hurricane, and one shot in which I examined more is the shot of the three children doing chalk drawings in the middle of the street, at the beginning of Chapter Three: Death. One of the drawings in which I am curious in regards to, is towards the bottom left in yellow chalk, and what appears to resemble a boat sailing upon water, with a fish underneath it? Does anybody happen to have any idea or thought on what this could symbolize? Additionally, one other chalk drawing that has myself left in wonder is towards the bottom on the right side in white chalk, and is underneath a drawing of a guitar... what is that? It sort of looks to be a crown, perhaps? Some sort of razor blade, or a puzzle piece?
