    Watched this with my wife many years ago at Leicester Square in London. Someone, presumably a bearded, pipe smoking, socialistic semi-intelectual shouted out, during the performance, 'this film is sexist, empiricist and capitalist' drawing discomfort to the audience. This person, in his arrogance, ruined the message of the film. Discuss.

    Would you just have written "somebody" a discussion would be possible. As you did already a categorization what do you expect to learn from a discussion?

    The point is of course to give people the freedom of their own opinion. As soon as one shouts labels, like "capitalist" most of the discussion will be without merit.
