    Credo quia absurdum.


    Quantum mechanics describes nature as absurd from the point of view of common sense. And yet it fully agrees with experiment. So I hope you can accept nature as She is - absurd! - Richard Feynman

          There was a very long stretch in `80s where the 'villain(s)' was some branch of the US military. Got pretty tiresome. The CIA is a pretty popular bad guy these days. It can't sue for defamation.
          Any metaphor will tear if stretched over too much reality.

            Well, they could, but then they would have to publish the truth.

            The original question, however, was what other countires use for their movie villains. Do the Russians use the American CIA?

              The reason why I love GoT is the depth and complexity of various characters, not all characters are pure evil or good in the universe of GoT. Some characters had both good and bad moments. This type of cerebral drama is best suited to small screen only.

              As for movie villains, it's hard to find such a deep and morally ambiguous character that isn't one-dimensional because there's not much time to go in-depth exploring the complexity of a villainous character. It's usually best to go with the usual archetypes and work a good story around them (with lots of special effects, of course).

                GoT is in a word of its own, being entirely fantasy-based, and that allows for some wonderful villains. Not sure, though, if Littlefinger had any redeeming qualities. Neither does Cersei, for that matter.
