Whenever you generally see a movie, the first 30 minutes are enough to judge the potential character markings. There's is often a main lead with all the good in the world, and there is his/her evil counterpart, who, even when doing good, raises suspicion in our minds on his motives.

There is often the extreme good or bad thought process governing our judgments towards people even in real life, especially in the public domain. Mahatma Gandhi is either loved or hated. Politics is either condemned or respected. This whole Black or White, Satan or Angel scenario deprives us of accepting the people as they are. Is the compartmentalized categorization of the complex human nature really worth anything? Why is it that our acceptance to the Grey in each of us is getting extinct?
Being a lawyer, I am aware of the fact that the good and the bad, the right and the wrong can be very fluid concepts at times. It is all about perspective, and I don't think that perspectives of a billion minds can be as simple as to be categorized in two extreme compartments. Can't we just appreciate a good effort and try to change the effects of a bad one for the better, rather than focusing on making our "I Love" and "I Hate" lists? What do you think? Whould you rather be choosing sides or do something by finding the middle way.
I would like to close with an amazing thought by Paulo Coelho in his book Brida:
Nothing in this world is completely wrong. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day
