Manipulation! Now this is about as evil as murder- to make a person feel so powerless that they will do anything that is asked by the Manipulator. WITHOUT QUESTION!
Evil and manipulation- what a dangerous combination. So it shall be , being under Ravens Wing. The mere though of questioning is asking for a guilt laden diatribe of how there’s should be NO questions-now that is FEAR of the kind that leads to unspeakable acts and complete submission.
Why this hits home- there are so many people who flirt with the line of morality and immorality- and we have all met someone like that! The selfish, the greedy, the megalomaniacs of this world. The power whores, the people who speak for you with out your true thoughts being spoke.
Raven- its interesting how a Raven in so many mythologies can be either a warning , an omen, a respected creature for the power it has (not unlike how the Hindu think of the Cobra) and thus work in communal ways because it is nature-
The young gals, being interviewed by a young man who is very curious about the story that they may have committed murder - are seeing that Raven may not be quite right. They are seeing that they may not be able to live a life of this darkness. One who tries hard to be the bad girl, the one that if she found courage in herself would run away from it- far away! Yet she has Ravens claws dug deep within her psyche and soul she cannot run away. She is powerless and afraid- the two things Raven is so good at making one feel. The other- she is rebelling- and fighting society and fighting herself.
The victim- the young man- the prey from the bar- the one who was trying to get back on his feet winds up flat on his back- with promises of a night of sex with 3 gorgeous women- a fantasy he has only dreamt of- now not only on his back ready for sex- but vulnerable beyond word- then the crushing blow- then the life is whisked away into a vapor. He never knew what hit him.
The psychotic Raven, the two girls she found open to anything, now have no life left. This is the sadness of the story- this is the tragic ending of a life that has lost itself - this is the living that is NOT living. This is the evil that Raven is.
This is the film- this is the greatness this is- to see the beginning to the end- to see the power one has over another. To see the twisted mind at work. This is a piece of film that needs to be seen- to see how people can be, yes even in real life. The film to see that you NEVER turn yourself over completely to a person- your soul, your mind- your will and desire, your conscience.
