Who is to Blame?

The questions raised within the articles were very thought provoking, especially in the wake of watching and thinking about The Hours.  I must agree with the comments from many, that without any strong evidence and without citations it seems that even with the most sound arguments seem lacking within Faludi's arguments.  If these arguments are taken at face value and applied to a text or film, even without strong evidence they present very interesting perspectives and analysis.  By applying her ideas to The Hours, new and unseen perspectives emerge that put the film in a larger network of social commentary and critique.  Operating under these applications does give the movie a greater richness and perspective that would otherwise be missed.
