I spent an hour arguing about The Interview with my parents.
And of course they are ll like “how dare they censor us! Kim Jong-Un insulted our president by calling him a monkey! He deserves to be made fun of!”
Like okay he’s a shitty person and I’m not defending him but,
why would you defend a movie that makes fun of him at the expense of millions of people that are living a nightmare under his regime?
There are millions of people born in concentration camps that live and die there, there are reports of cannibalism, there is brainwashing to such an extent that there is no sense of self or identity, and you are being watched ALL THE TIME. Hard works means nothing. There is no luxury for anyone. Their suffering is REAL and It’s IMPORTANT and its SO CRUCIAL to realize that their agony is not worth reducing to a cheap plot line and to be glossed over with a comedic brush because “this is ‘murica and we can say whatever we want!!1!!”
Why would you put even more strain on our relationship with North Korea just to make a point? Why would you endanger South Korea by aggravating NK to the point where they might actually DO something?
This movie is nothing but racist, ignorant, and completely reducing the people that live in NK’s struggle so that we can crack a few jokes about it’s leader.
