Blog #2 Weber (House of Sand and Fog)

Watching the movie “House of Sand and Fog” Mr. Behrani, he portraits a lot of Webers theories throughout the film. Weber discusses “Charismatic Authority” which rests on the devotion to the exceptional sanctity, heroism or exemplary character of an individual person. This is portrait towards the ending of the film where Kathy is trying to commit suicide in a result of losing her home, and Mr. Behrani shows a great deal of character despite all the dilemmas, he helped take care of her and brought her into his home. Another theory that supports Weber theory is Mr.Behrani’s “Rational-Legal Authority” which rests on a belief in the legality of enacted rules.  Mr.Behrani is well aware of Kathy’s situation but he knows legally that the house now belongs to him and it is a blessing that he must take advantage of, even if it may cause another dilemma with another individual.
