• • Our Man Flint (Blu-ray Review)
John Latchem, Home Media If [Derek] Flint seems like a poster child for Libertarians, it was intentional. According to one of the new extras on this exceptional Blu-ray, the film’s producer, Saul David, was a proponent of Ayn Rand’s philosophies, and played up those traits that appealed to him. Thus, Flint becomes something of a symbol of private initiative coming to the rescue of incompetent government bureaucrats. And the bad guys? Three scientific elites striving to remake the world into a utopia through extortion and brainwashing. If these seem like contemporary themes, remember that all this took place in 1966.
