This movie is about a young Afro-American guy who is in an interracial relationship and he visits his new girlfriend’s parents (you can find more about this movie here). This movie is f*cked up on too many levels.
First, it approaches the racial issues and I think it does it pretty well. I believe it’s all around some “predefined” patterns that are in our head. Because we’re used to judge people, all people, we just can’t help ourselves sometimes in doing it. We judge people for everything… for dressing in a certain way, for talking in a certain way, for thinking in a certain way and for looking in a certain way. And for what?
Secondly, there is another big moral problem there which I can’t talk about without spoiling the movie so I’m going to say just this: money can bring the best and the worst from people… the problem appears when those rich people think they have power over other people’s lives and they act on that. Having a need or a desire does not mean we should do something about that just because we can.
I think it’s a very interesting movie and it kept me on the edge right from the beginning. Have you seen it? What are your thoughts about this movie?
