Morals and ethics are tricky concepts. Motives, unlike a concrete object such as a chair, cannot be turned upside down to be viewed from all angles, tried on for size and tested to see if they hold up under the weight of objectivity, but The Image (1990) attempts to do just that. Albert Finney stars as an ambitious news anchor whose overly ardent investigative reporting in savings-and-loan misconduct leads to the suicide of an innocent banker. Did Finney intend harm? Was he operating out of malice or hubris? Does a moral relativity apply to Finney’s culpability? Is any suicide ever innocent? Such questions might seem bleakly imponderable, but don’t forget that Marsha Mason’s frontal floaters are on hand to provide emergency leavening.
