Rocknroller is my favourite. Underrated but a cult hit, way better than the far more successful Lock Stock.

I don't, but I sometimes wonder why many men are so attracted to male actors playing tough guy roles. 


One of the times I can remember being attracted to a tough guy in a role was when Lee Marvin, a real tough guy, played the gunfighter in Cat Ballou. It made a mockery of the tough guy in movies image. or Christopher Walking playing the bad cop in 'The Milagro Beanfield War'.


But it's interesting to consider what the attraction to John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, etc. is all about for men. Some possibilities:


1. Latent homosexual attraction?


2. The viewer imagining himself in the role of the tough guy?


3. And inward expression of anger being released in a safe way?


4. ?
