These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Values Dissonance: Back when the film was first released, the notion of a wealthy elite using their money to force changes to a government, including arbitrarily picking the country's new leadership, seemed like a novel idea. Nowadays, it's a nightmare to folks on both the right and the left.
Vindicated by History: The film was considered a flop: despite reasonable success, it didn't do as well as their previous films at the box office and led to their being dropped by Paramount and moving to MGM.
