I enjoyed the new Netflix David Fincher flick, The Killer. Kind of a thinking person's John Wick, though I suppose that may be an oxymoron.

What it most reminded me of though was Man On Fire.

While Wick eschews any moral questions, Man asks, "Will God forgive us for what we've done?" Killer dispenses with the question by embracing nihilism, the only law being, "Do what thou wilt."

Of the three, Man On Fire is most appealing to me, because a journey of revenge became a path toward redemption.

Life is meaningless. We bring meaning to life.

Do what thou wilt.
