Assholes: A Theory

2019     Canada      1 x 90/60     Color & B/W     English

Some grapple with the moral challenges of treating other human beings decently. Others are just…assholes. “A newborn boy in the US, Italy or Israel is much more likely to live the life of an asshole than a newborn boy in Japan, Norway or Canada”says Prof. Aaron James in his NY Times bestseller. Intellectually provocative an existentially necessary John Walker explores James’ theories and recommendations using clips sourced from Hollywood and news archives, combined with vox pop and ruminations with key observers of asshole-dom. The frustration of dealing with assholes – in the workplace, in government, at home – affects everyone. In an age of rampant narcissism, the time has come for this entertaining and insightful film.
