Utter nepotistic well lit Nonsense
27 June 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Why would a privileged director, who is a caucasion female, tackle a movie about Civil war and miss something that had "everything" to do with the war itself: i.e. S.L.A.V.E.S? And yet choose to focus on lust and sexuality of former slave holder men and women instead? If ones answer is anything to justify this then indeed, that viewer is part of the problem.

This is like making a movie during Auschwitz and focusing on carnal eroticism between soldiers and the German women of the village and not at all make any reference to the sheer horrors that were occurring around them. Would that make sense?

To make a film, well lit, with talented actors waxing poetic in their gowns, surrounded by cool music and sexually charged intonations between genteel proper Caucasians and not at least work in the plots involving 1) chattel slaves 2) the business that brought wealth by slavery and or 3) the repercussions of this horrible blight in American recent history but emphasize isolated women and confederate soldiers shows where the heart of the director truly lies.

Are black women a pariah to privileged, female, coddled directors in Hollywood? For Sophia Coppola, the answer may be yes. This was a wholly unnecessary, irresponsible, debauched tale told by a tellingly silver spooned woman who wouldn't have a career save the help of her very talented father. Pros: well lit, acting (doing what they're paid to do) Cons: everything else
