Same religious thinking, different scriptures
15 July 2015 | by (France) – See all my reviews

America used to be filled with Puritans. Those people are dead. But their mentalities still live on. Dark skinned people, foreigner, anything that is perceived as external is ready to be used as why the dreams of somebody were not fulfilled after 20 years of work.

The movie opens with a balding white middle-aged man playing concerned. I am quite sure the character is genuinely concerned, yet that does not lessen the ridicule of the scene. He is used with the "good ol times". That is why he wears artificial fiber clothes made somewhere in Asia. He remembers when he was a youngster and that life. This is why he drives a new truck, bigger than his daddy's. His family (I assume) relaxes on the banks of a river, just like local farmers used to in crop season. But the big bad wizard has come to their quiet neighborhood! A foreign company is sucking all their water. Which is not their anyway. And because there is no water, they are standing next to a wide river.

I nearly dropped off my chair when the balding white middle-aged man remembered "this is like Texas in the '30s".

And the movie goes on and on. It is silly as a Laurel and Hardy comedy. But saddening at the same time. Laurel and Hardy made it look like a story with silly people. This looks like reality. And these scared well-fed rednecks have the right to vote and more money in the bank than a large village in India.
