IF YOU WANT THE ENGLISH VERSION OF THIS BOOK, LOOK FOR A DIFFERENT PAGE!!!!
"The meaning of life is suffering, specifically the suffering of others...Reducing a prisoner to weeping and wailing and begging is a delightful way to invest your existence with meaning."
"This is how to torture a prisoner: first, you must convince him that you are a friend. Listen to him. Encourage him to confess his sins...You gain his trust, you refuse him...and [induce] physical terror along with the emotional sort."
"I would like very much to torture a prisoner. I would like to make someone suffer."
"Listen, this is what you do: Go and torture the prisoner...it will satisfy your cravings..."
Attempts to redeem the story with so called forgiveness and "light" are overcome by the pervasive darkness of the narrative. By the way, the movie sanitizes these themes but is largely boring and poorly constructed.
