I got my hands on the June issue of Z Magazine, and it haves a nice interview of Costas Gavras, apropos the release of a new print of the film Z a few months back. One point particularly drew my attention, as I hadn’t thought of it that way before:
Like the assassinations of Trotsky and Kennedy during the same era, the Deputy takes a fatal blow to the head (brain). What does that say about fascism and the state of ideas?
This is a very true statement. Consciously or unconsciously, fascists hit (aim, shoot) the most vulnerable part of man: his head, a place from where his ideas come from—especially when these same ideas condemn fascism.
