And finally, because I love this play, the first trailer for Fences. Costume design by Sharen Davis.

For having loved The Magnificent Seven as much as I did (I’m gonna pay again to watch it a second time), I sure didn’t write enough about it.

The movie is amazing.

Why?

Diversity. We have:

  • a Mexican, Vasquez (played by a Mexican actor, Manuel García-Rulfo)
  • a white dude, Faraday (played by a white dude, Chris Pratt)
  • a black man, Chisolm (played by a black dude, Danzel Washington)
  • a Korean guy, Billy (played by a Korean actor, Lee Byung-hun)
  • a Native American, Red Harvest (here they messed up a bit because he’s playing a Comache but the actor is Alaskan First Nation, Martin Sensmeier)
  • a probably mentally ill fat guy [yes I take that as a separate category], Horne (played by Vincent D’Onofrio who is autistic)
  • a woman with a male companion who is not her keeper, Mrs. Emma Cullen (played by Haley Bennett)
  • a (white) guy with PTSD, Robicheaux (played by Ethan Hawke)

The Director (Antoine Fuqua) is black, one of the producers (Roger Birnbaum) is Jewish, one of the writers (Hideo Oguni) is Japanese.

[Edit: swapped “has autism” for “is autistic” and took out “tiny” for casting an Alaskan First Nation for a Comanche]

Irkçılıkla ilgili en önemli filmlerde Danzel Washington'ın oynaması

Siyahi ırkçılığı ile ilgili Danzel'in oynadığı 3 tane film izledim.
-Adam, en önemli müslüman siyahi liderlerden Malcolm X'i oynamış.
-En önemli siyahi boksörlerden Rubin Hurricane Carter'ı oynamış.
-Siyahlarla beyazların beraber okuduğu ilk okuldaki ilk siyahi hocayı oynamış.

Ulan ben bu adamı hiç sevmiyordum ama bu önemli filmlerde göre göre kanım ısınmaya başladı. Şimdi de yine Danzel'in oynadığı, gaylerle ilgili en önemli filmlerden biri olan Philadelphia'yı izleyeceğim.
