Brad's Status : chances are still alive
The motivation for watching this film is entering middle age without realizing it. As anxious as the protagonist, watching other people succeed, but still struggling underneath, is very uncomfortable and confusing.

As early as thousands of years ago, there was a voice "Princes and generals, I prefer the same." The movement failed and had limitations.
