Ah, been about 20 years since I saw it & only saw it once, so forgot about the finer details. Dont feel quite so sorry for him now!Mason Verger molested kids and raped his sister. Lector had him mutilate himself after he used his connections to avoid prosecution.
Got to cop off with the little blonde piece at the end of moonraker though and helped bond, so was redeemed.Jaws from James Bond - hidden away, forced to do his master's bidding because he's a man mountain, metal mouthed circus freak who just wants to be loved FFS.
Born into a family dynasty as a women with no rights at all.Nah I can’t agree with that like. You’re going to have to convince me.
Can't remember how much of that was in the film tbh. Those are the highlights of his his back story in the book, the sister was one of Lector's patients which is how he knew the score.Ah, been about 20 years since I saw it & only saw it once, so forgot about the finer details.

Good post. Cersei is no worse than the other killers in the series (eg. Daenerys) but seems to have a worse reputationBorn into a family dynasty as a women with no rights at all.
An arranged marriage sees her tied to a fat, hateful alcoholic who regularly cheats on her with prostitutes and any other women who'll have him, all the while professing his true love is another woman long dead.
Has three children to another man, one she has actual deep feelings for, who circumstance has it is also her brother, but nonetheless now she has her true calling that is evident and undeniable throughout the series - the blind love for and protection of her own at any cost. It was never about the throne for her, simply the people she loved.
Over the course of the show all three of those children are killed two of those children are murdered, and her youngest takes her own life. Her father is also killed by her younger brother who she can only assume is also responsible for the death of her firstborn - who was a bit of a shit, but she knows this and doesn't condone it but is forever judged by his actions.
Her daughter is taken from her and sent to Dorne, she anticipates her return after a brutal year of subjigation and humiliation at the hands of her daugher in law and a brutal authoritarian cult, only to receive her remains as she is murdered for literally no reason at all.
Said sinister authoritarian cult leaves her bereft, and the eventual overthrowing of said cult results in the suicide of her youngest son, whom they have brainwashed.
She takes the title of Queen but it's all that's left for her. She's not a ruler, or a despot. She only wants to protect what she loves. She still has her strength and resolution but she's long broken. Then her brother turns his back on her, too.
Her story ends with his return when they are both crushed to death as the returning Queen we've all been rooting for massacres an entire city.
She should have been allowed to abandon Kings Landing and leave with Jamie, the only love she has left, abdicate, crack on and do their own thing in peace. Instead they died to satisfy an irrational blood lust. All that can be said is that that irritating Pete Doherty lookalike Arya didn't do her in.
She deserved better. IMHO.
