Sadist nation?

It is sad and shocking that America has rewarded American Sniper with record box office revenues of $100 million on opening weekend. Its sadistic scenes mentioned here, seems to have been an attraction rather than a deterrent.
But this has been a theme with top draw directors like Clint Eastwood and also Ridley Scott who show unspeakable brutality under the guise of 'realism' and reap a bonanza. It appears that violence has replaced sex as the key to a top seller.
