There are a lot of good movies where the crazies win! It's all about the character development, creating an understanding and sympathetic connection and suddenly the villain or "crazy" character becomes the heroine.
The Wicker Man, bad movie, poor character development, simply sucked!
Population 436, haven't seen and now know shouldn't...........
If you think about movies like Snatch, you are drawn to all the characters, and I found myself sympathetic towards most of the main criminal characters!
Indiana Jones, perfect example of routing for the criminal! Agreed, I was to!
The Usual Suspects, one of my top 5 favorites! Routing for all of the criminals to the very end!
Heat, completely sympathetic for the criminals.
