Pixar Animation Studios averages making more money per film than any other film studio.
Perhaps the reason is people recognize and are attracted to powerful truths slightly veiled in allegories; as in this six-minute video.
A Bug’s Life (1998) is about two societies: one numerous slave society of ants and a small psychopath-led parasitic society of grasshoppers.
The movie opens showing the ants lost in routines of slavery and most literally dominated by fear to the extent they cannot/will not see what’s right in front of them.
They are hostile to obvious-superior innovation of one ant that challenges them to think.
The grasshoppers use the ants to produce their food in psychopathic fashion: claiming to &ldquorotect” the ants and being “compassionate,” while openly brandishing violence to enforce obedience.
From one ant’s passion to create a brighter future, events develop whereby the ants plan resistance.
When the plan fails and the psychopath leader orders public torture as a “lesson,” the ants finally see the gangsters as violent parasites, stand together, and drive the slave-masters away.
The act of standing instantly splits the 1%, isolating its leadership to capture.
