so america has a long history of immigration and if it weren’t for current immigration we’d be suffering the exact same late-capitalism population decline as japan (it’s this declining ratio of birthrate to immigration, more than immigration alone, that’s causing major contemporary demographic shifts)

but i’m thinking about how when people immigrate to the united states, just like when they migrate anywhere else, they set up little ethnic enclaves. whether it’s armenians or puerto ricans or apparently a bunch of portuguese people specifically from the azores in this one neighborhood in san diego, everyone finds a way to maintain their culture and traditions at least for a few generations

but at the same time white americans have just kind of stayed here, sitting on top of the festering trash heap that is america because we love the view i guess. we don’t really leave. our last huge environmental and economic catastrophe caused an enormous amount of migration from the great plains into (mostly) california, the effects of which are still visible, but california is still the united states

what i’m saying is there’s never been an opportunity to observe american culture within that weird, kind of condensed migrant enclave dynamic which i think would be raw. but there will be in the future and maybe it will happen in our lifetimes. it could be global warming related, or if yellowstone goes off this will be one of the most immediate consequences for everyone who’s not living in the great basin and gets vaporised. maybe capitalism

anyway that will be exciting

The question is, how does a person find themselves at a crossroads between “siding with a victim” and “enjoying a film” if the film in question has questionable merit to begin with? If you had to go the rest of your life never watching another Woody Allen film, what would really, actually be lost?

But also if you work hard enough at it and are smart about it, you can side with victims AND enjoy a film. If none of us ever enjoyed work by problematic artists, there would be nothing to enjoy.

how many child molesting artists do you enjoy? i’d like to see the list, please! of that list, how many of those artists write movies starring avatars of themselves going after women between the ages of 17-24? (actually not that wild of a request, i know there are a lot of gross dudes in the world!!)

also, you added the tag  #the constitution was written by slave owners as if that proved your point. how is the constitution enjoyable, or art, and how is “slave owning” merely “problematic”? please staple your 3 paragraph response to this to the back of your list of child molesters whose work you enjoy. thanks!

just throwing some opinions around here but the constitution reads exactly like it was written by slave owners, and also sucks

Conservatives will suck the free market’s dick and wanna pay people 3 cents an hour but then flip shit when someone is willing to risk starting a new life in this country in a job that pays under minimum wage

You’d think they’d be the poster child of capitalism to these fools, but since they aren’t white they’re painted as thieves instead

"A clear example of the types of definitions and control in regard to imagery of Maori people can be seen in the recently acclaimed film The Piano. There is little doubt in my mind that Jane Campion is a film maker of great ability and repute. However, the depiction of Maori people in the film leaves no stereotyped stone unturned. What we have in The Piano is a series of constructions of Maori people which are located firmly in a colonial gaze, which range from the ‘happy go lucky native’ to the sexualised Maori woman available at all times to service Pakeha men. The perception of Maori people given in The Piano is that our tipuna were naive, simpleminded, lacked reason, acted impulsively and spoke only in terms of sexual innuendo, with a particular obsession with male genitalia. For Maori people The Piano is dangerous. It is dangerous in its portrayal of Maori people linked solely to a colonial gaze, that is uncritical and unchallenging of the stereotypes that have been paraded continuously as ‘the way we were.’"
Leonie Pihama, “Are films dangerous? A Maori woman’s perspective on ‘The Piano.’”  (via filmantidote)
