Abstract: This critical autoethnography is about my encounters, throughout my life, with the “Western” (liminal) heroes and villains, who came to life on screens large and small. It is about the shifting visions of heroism, villainy, and violence in our culture. It is about walking the borderlands between all these territories. And it is about my own gradual awakening.
