Hollywood and a Violent Society

I recall going to the theater in 1983 to see the movie, Scarface, and being appalled at the amount of harsh language and in-human violence.  I was so embarrassed by the violet scenes in the movie that I actually apologized to my date.

It’s interesting that watching the movie again twenty years later, I was surprised how seemingly ‘sedate’ the the action in the movie appeared.

What does this experience mean?
