Always With the Negative Rays

There is a weird World War II movie called Kelly's Heroes with Clint Eastwood as the titular character. It's an odd film. Donald Sutherland plays a kind of hippie tank commander who is obsessed with the psychic rays people send off. Anyway.

It probably has a lot to do with the really succinct nature of the medium. But sometimes it seems excessive. I'm sure I've been guilty of it, but I will try to be better.
