If you’re a comic book nerd, if you ever loved The Punisher…



Short film:

“Vengeance is an emotional response. My actions must appeal to a higher standard. Not vengeance. Punishment.”


“Do you know the difference between Justice and Punishment?”

His hesitation to get involved reminds me of Sanjuro, Yojimbo. And, finally, his violent, quick involvement reminds me of a Gesar, or a Dharmapala, a Mahakala—the fourth karma in Buddhism.
