Class Warfare Goes to the Movies It's been two years since Occupy Wall Street dramatized the increasing concentration of wealth in America's upper social stratosphere. That's about the time it takes to create and produce a movie and, sure enough, some of the latest Hollywood fare has more than a tinge of class-consciousness. There's social warfare in a future dystopia, magicians who pull off Robin Hood-style heists and Los Angeles teenagers who burglarize the homes of the rich and famous. How well do they mirror today's social reality? Is that what movies should do?
