question of the day: Are critics obligated to warn audiences about potentially offensive or upsetting film content?

This has been bugging me all week. Joe Nathan in Twin Cities Daily Planet: Would you find a movie entertaining in which a father repeatedly struck and screamed at his six-year -old daughter? Probably not. A national authority on child abuse is deeply concerned about a movie that contains such scenes, especially when potential movie goers are not warned about what the movie contains. But, incredibly, and unfortunately, Tc Daily Planet reviewer Jim Brunzell III recently described this relationship as “a loving bond of father and daughter,” In his July 18 review of “Beasts of the Southern Wild” reviews, he wrote that the movie also depicts “harsh realities we are faced with in doing what is best for one another and moving on.” Because the impact of child abuse can be so strong and long lasting and the response of Brunzell and some movie critics has been bizarre, it’s important to discuss. »
