A rabble of cliches and bias
11 February 2020 | by balthazargoldbergSee all my reviews

I'd dare to say that this movie is a failed attempt to assert a political message by drawing on historical events and manipulating them. The acting is pathetic, cheesy and over-dramatic. The whole movie is filled with cliches and unnecessary conflicts, so much that it reminded me of the kind of poorly written prose my professors warned me to stay away from. The world isn't just black and white - it is obnoxious to state that all rich men are good and all poor men are bed, but at the same time it is quite stupid to declare that all rich men are evil and all poor men are good. This is what this movie does: sailing from one prejudice to the other, while constantly claiming to denounce "racism" and "discrimination". Left-winged naivety at its best.
