THE AX
Gavras | 2001 | Bel/Fra/Spa | 122m
“Films on the Green”
8:30 at Tompkins Sq Pk

“He’s in the paper business, gets made redundant courtesy of restructuring/downsizing/merging, goes unemployed for two years before realising this: that if he “eliminates” the competition (i.e. prospective candidates), he’ll be back pulping trees in no time… Costa-Gavras might be trying to stick it to the corporations here, but what The Ax is really about is preservation of The Lifestyle. Bruno doesn’t have a hatred for capitalism – it’s what gives him and his family the house in the ‘burbs with all its furnishings and creature comforts – but a burning rage for whatever reason it is that he can’t get a job (one, too much pride). That he won’t resort to menial employment like his wife or fellow out-of-work jobseekers (some of which he whacks anyway) only serves to amplify the fact that he’s selfish, morally bankrupt, and determined to be a well-paid drone in the corporate scheme-of-things.”
Tim Wong, The Lumière Reader
