In the Argentinian film "Anteojito: Mil Intentos y un Invento" (1972) a bench (yes, a bench) tells the protagonist the story of a metal stick (yes, a metal stick) who - at first - only wishes to have a better life, but becomes the most ambitious bastard alive in the end and lives now at the top of the highest building, above everyone else but also lonelier than anyone. I would love to see this example on the page because it is one of the most touching movies I saw as a child. Check it out, it's here on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=XtTi8sI8_Mg

Is this trope applicable to pedestals, if said pedestal is meant to be a visual metaphor for a god complex?
