"My name is Richard Wilder"

The scene where Luke Evans' character just sits there, yelling his name into the tape recorder over and over, as he gradually becomes more and more unintelligible, only to then play it back to himself, accurately displays, in an allegorical way, the reason why all of us use the internet...because we are so scared that we do not have a voice, that we will become screaming irrational buffoons (sorry to buffoons), just so we can feel like we are being heard, when it really is only ourselves listening.
