Watchmen (2009): Rorschach’s Journal part 4| SUBTITLES included


Rorschach’s journal, October 16th, Thought about Moloch’s story, could all be lies, a revenge scheme, planned during his years behind bars. But if it’s true, what could have possibly scared the Comedian enough to cry in front of Moloch? What was it he saw? and that list he mentioned? Edward Blake, The Comedian, born 1918, buried in the rain. Murdered. Is that what happens to us? No time for friends? Only our enemies leave roses. Violent lives ending violently. Blake understood. Humans are savage in nature. No matter how much you try to dress it up, to disguise it. Blake saw society’s true face. Chose to be a parody of it, a joke. I heard a joke once. Man goes to doctor, says he’s depressed. Life seems harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world. Doctor says “Treatment is simple. The great clown, Pagliacci, is in town. Go see him. That should pick you up”. Man bursts into tears. “But doctor”, he says, “I am Pagliacci.” Good joke. Everybody laugh. Roll on snare drum. Curtains.
