American Beauty: The Tide Has Turned. „I rule!“ (01:11:41) Lester further boycotts her red-rose-mania by indifferently putting his bare naked feet and a bottle of beer next to a bouquet of roses in the living room, dressed in sloppy clothes, playing with a remote-controlled toy car – one of the causes for their marital arguments.

After going to the movies and seeing a woman character in the movie, Winston dehumanizes a woman. He describes a violent sexual fantasy imagining, “He would ravish her and cut her throat at the moment of climax...
