Winner of the prestigious Olivier Award for Best Comedy, Ben Elton’s Popcorn is a brilliant and satirical black comedy that follows the trail of two kids, who in reaction to the ongoing violence in films, go on their own cross country killing spree. In California, they take their favorite film director hostage and claim his violent movies are the reason they became serial killers. Does the extreme violence in today’s movies motivate real-life acts of brutality?
