Ashlee Chang Jennifer Gianunzio English 100 12/01/10 Summary/Response "Making a Killing" Mike White Mike White's article in the New York Times centralizes around the idea that film businesses should "at least pause to consider what we are saying with our movies about the value of life and the pleasures of mayhem." To start his piece, he tells about a horror film about a man in a hockey mask and a blue kimono (who knows why?) who goes around killing young teenagers for no reason. He shares with us this movie was actually produced by himself as a twelve-year-old. Throughout his childhood, White enjoyed watching gory films packed with violence with his other teenage friends. Adolescents often find these types of movies as "in," and incorporate them into their slang, sense of fashion, and how the think and talk to authority figures and friends.

He believes that violence in movies isn't the primary cause of violence
