I think my expectations were too high for this. So many people said it was great.
I think I see what they’re doing here, but maybe it’s my cynacism getting in the way. It seems like they are saying “good people can do bad things (Ryan Phillipe and others) and bad people can do good things (Matt Dillon and others)… and everyone’s racist.”
I’m not sure if that’s the message or if there’s a bigger message. I’m not saying I disagree w/ the message as it is, but I’m not blown away by it.
It was well done and compelling. It’s a good film as a film. But as far as what I got out of it: 3.
