What People are Saying About This

Barclay Owens

McCarthy prompts us to ask ourselves why we watch Quentin Tarantino films or Jerry Springer, or why our national attention is riveted to real-life violence, such as the O.J. trial, the Timothy McVeigh trial, the JonBenet Ramsey investigation, or whatever the most recent mayhem might be. Our fascination and horror are twinned, paradoxical responses, compelling us to keep watching, to satiate our desire for a vicarious thrill.
