A Word on Hope: Vocation in Light of the Baltimore Riots, Part II of III

  1. I recently watched the film “Birdman”, and alot of the potential struggles with identity you refer to here are exemplified in a grotesque manner in the movie. The main character wavers between an egotistical mania and a frenetic self-pitying hopelessness, as he struggles to find his self worth in his work. Perhaps the most provocative aspect of the film is how this struggle is not condemned in and of itself, but rather labeled as a sort of modern-day martyrdom made necessary by the (perceived) ultimate meaningless of life.
