Wes Anderson BTFO
Haha holy fuck.
wasn't this supposed to be an anti-trump parable or something? i assumed msm would LOVE it
its like your not aloud to make any think that isnt based on your own race, colour, gender or experience
man if that was real what a fucking shitty boring world it would be
It was in pre-production before Trump announced his campaign I think
i would like to know what Japanese people really think about this movie
Why do wes's movies all have a ton of advertisements? I thought they were indie.
Why the FUCK is there an article about this?
Toledo's opinion may as well be twitter eceleb shit.
Honestly that just made me want to see it
retard in a shit band has a terrible opinion
It's like Last Samurai all over again
Wes Anderson BTFO
"Wes Anderson's 'Isle of Dogs' is often captivating, but cultural sensitivity gets lost in translation"
Yeah kid i don't think you know what BTFO means.
Anderson's an American making a movie set in Japan where all the Japanese people speak Japanese and are played by Japanese people, while all the English speakers are dogs, the fuck do they want? Did they forget that a mere few decades ago this would've been a movie with white actors in Japanese clothes speaking English for 100% of the movie? Japanese people don't even get asshurt about this kind of stuff the way Americans do. I just googled Wes Anderson and saw a headline from Pitchfork literally calling the movie racist, what the actual fuck?
EL LUIZ EXTINGUIDO
Welcome to 2018.
I fucking loved the movie and I can't even express how pissed I am to have the mere thoughts of the identity politics intruding into my experience of it.
The plot of the movie reminds me of a shonen adventure manga, I don't know how you could hate it unless you hate fun
the fuck do they want?
In this case he wants to act terminally offended and write self-righteous film reviews. He draws his salary from it.
Because pitchfork has gone all in on that juicy clickbait money.
man that guy is such a massive faggot. His music is so over rated and he has shit opinions on everything i've ever read from him
Remember Wes, it's TWO THOUSAND AND EIGHTEEN. Repeat after me: If it ain't white, it ain't right.
what the fuck
Basic bitch 2.5 gpa gender studies major.
The soyest of boys.
Who would have thought????
it's one of those words that makes you tune out
It's millennial for "I'm too retarted to make an argument so I'm going to call this thing that hurt my feelings 'icky' in hopes that someone makes my argument for me."
maybe you should try reading his full argument
something something cultural bullshit
what did these people say when they saw Kubo?
The thing that pisses me off about this is that it's a demand that all art be not offensive. They only want hugbox entertainment that validates their own 'praise diversity but live in a gated community' worldview
search engines are your friend
Only if you are white.
I was quoting them, tard.
Why are the dogs bigger than chinko?
I don't think you know what the word quote means. Perhaps you mean "mock".
Nope, that's a direct quote of what they really mean when they say "problematic". I saw it in the Dictionary of Dull-Ass Woke Millennial Buzzwords. It's real. I've seen it.
But where is the only review that matters?
Oh but I don't think he reviews movies, only fast food and frozen stuff.
Realistic scale. Based anderson
It’s in Anderson’s handling of the story’s humans that his sensitivity falters
Wow good thing I don't go to the movies bc I'm invested in the sensitivity of the director
Goddammit. I just started listening to this dude's music and enjoying it and he's gotta go and say some shit like this
He looks like he posts on /r/asianmasculinity
unironically my second favorite movie reviewer, behind only Armond White.
This has become a compliment nowadays, along with "controversial", "insensitive", "sexist" and all the other classics.
What the fuck is wrong with these people?!?!? What's the fucking point? Do they really believe this fucking shit?! Even though they're all giving it positive reviews, they still mention this idiotic bullshit, and *this* doesn't movie deserve it. This is what insanity looks like.
There's a lot here to potentially enjoy but only if the culture clash is something you can put in the back of your mind. - Leigh Monson, Birth.Movies.Death.
even with some questionable decisions regarding cultural translation... - Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News
"Isle of Dogs" is a visual bento box assembled by a gifted dilettante, an outsider who loves the art of a place but seems much less interested in its meaning to the people and culture that created it. - Ty Burr, Boston Globe
the most vexing thing is that nobody saw challenges of glib Western theft coming. - Jonathan Dean, GQ Magazine [UK]
Isle of Dogs is a beautiful film from a white, male perspective. - Anna Greer, Bust Magazine
This is a film where a character is literally whitewashed, an act that makes him more agreeable afterwards. Isle of Dogs treats this as a sight gag. It plays more like a confession. - Odie Henderson, RogerEbert.com
Isle of Dogs is profoundly lost in approach, not just in translation. - Leonardo Faierman, Black Girl Nerds
Isle of Dogs's invocations of corruption and militarism should leave a sour taste in the mouth of anyone unable to abandon the thought of the world outside of the film's perimeters. - Steve Macfarlane, Slant Magazine
you really can't win. writers are expected to be inclusive, but it's understood they're unable to actually write those other types of characters well. so they get shit on either way. best to just stick to what you know and do it well.

How long have you known you're gay?
After reading this insecurity-ridden "review" and seeing other complaints, I still don't understand what people's problem with the film is. No one has really said what's in the film that is so detestable
It's Wes Anderson, you already know whether you're going to like it or not before watching it.
Black Girl Nerds
I love Wes but didn't like this one, what now faggot
I get that, but all these reviews seem to be saying a whole lot of nothing. I want to know what they are actually saying is so "problematic." I intend on seeing the movie bc it looks good. I just want to know what everyone is crying about
Have you ever talked to a person like that before? No matter the subject, they'll find a way to give you their moral upstanding opinion on social issues you don't care about and were never even mentioned.
They literally have nothing to complain about beyond
Having japanese people in your movie is cultural appropriation?
When you're a white, straight man and include japanese history in your movies, yes.
It's the impotent wailing of the social justice militia - the movie reduces Japanese culture to kabuki, haiku, Kurosawa, etc, all things that Japanese people are proud of and love to see represented.
Who cares what race the creator is as long as it's a good film and as long as said culture is portrayed well then there's nothing wrong with that. If an Asian dude makes a movie set in Medieval France and does a really good job portraying it then all the better for him.
Who cares about the race of the creator as long as his ideas and values are in the right place
woah woah sonny jim what year do you think it is?
he's got Brock genetics
You don't understand. They don't need a good reason, the whole point is their "struggle". They need "problematic" things to exist to justify their miserable existance.
Does this white American filmmaker's highly selective, idiosyncratic rendering of an East Asian society constitute a sincere act of homage, or a clueless failure of sensitivity?
White Privilege is being unable to make any movies not about white people in white countries and also having people constantly screaming for you to get replaced so people can make movies about other races from other countries
not everything is about drumpf
Essentially their criticism is, it’s a film made by a white male about somewhere foreign. Meanwhile, the Japanese make loads of animes based in foreign countries. That’s ok though. As long you aren’t white, you can do what the fuck you want with your artistic vision.
Where was all this whining over Big Hero 6, or Coco? The characters in Coco are fucking grotesque caricatures; they animated the grandma's upper arm flab, for fuck's sake
Really makes you think huh
If there is a reason to cherish this often captivating, sometimes irritating, unavoidably perplexing movie, it's that its mere existence seems to defy rational explanation. It is by turns savage and soulful, mangy and refined, possessed of an unmistakable pedigree and yet boldly resistant to categorization.
Underneath the Black Girl Nerds review at their actual website, above the comments section, is the statement "BGN encourages civil, engaged conversation. We reserve the right to remove comments and ban users who engage in disrespectful behavior to the writers as well as the BGN Community."
There are no comments posted.

Where was all this whining over Big Hero 6
Because the white males in the movie were the fucking villain and comedy relief rich stoner kid
Where the fuck have /you/ been?
Though, in your defense, I have yet to see Coco so I have nothing to say about that.

YOU CAN'T MAKE THIS SHIT UP
___ IS ALWAYS RIGHT
Holy shit lmao
You forgot the part where you can't make movies about white people/history either. The only acceptable form of culture is one creates for, by, and starring nonwhites. TLDR wh*tey needs to stop existing already.
The criticism of this movie mirrors exactly the kind of garbage I have to read about The Mikado every time there's a new production. For some reason these reviewers are convinced that any fanciful Japanese comedy setting, no matter how innocently portrayed and well-intentioned, is a horrible slight against Japan. Wes Anderson probably bent over backwards not to offend and he still gets this criticism because no good deed goes unpunished.
I live in Japan (inb4 weeb) and they literally don’t care anyway. Their happy to see their culture being promoted. SJWs getting offended on other cultures behalves is pathetic and racist in itself.
Wow. I didn’t know they still made films that sexist. Do not take your kids to see Isle of Dogs unless you want them to learn the world is 90% male; that men are there to lead; & women there to be SEXY. JFC.
UH OH, TOO MANY MALES GUYS.
Thanks Scott for defending the oppressed Japanese
a film about dogs
ugh the patriarchy is at it again
Burn the world, the next generation doesn’t deserve it
Why do Asian Americans think there’s some pan-Asian culture? Why do they think they’re more important? And Jen Yamato is a nutter.
This is funny because Japanese people love Avril
I see this with a lot of people on whose behalf journalists write these articles. Many of them aren't aware of the movie being pilloried and the ones that are don't care or find it kinda funny. When I went through my weeb phase some years ago, I cracked up every time some over-the-top American showed up to shout random gibberish. It's just good fun!
Try telling Chinese or Koreans they are the same.
its funny because its true. asian americans know probably less about japan as say, some random french guy with a jap fetish.
you're americans. your skin colour isnt sufficient grounds to talk about shit you know nothing about
Exactly. Most Asian Americans have very little idea about Asia. They’ve probably never set foot there. But whitey is always wrong regardless.
Chink equivalent to
MY GREAT-GREAT GRANDFATHER WAS 1/8TH IRISH, PROUD SUPPORTER OF THE IRA, GOD I LOVE GUINNESS
Why are Americans so obsessed with muh heritage?
I hate Wes but love this movie.
those are Chinese surnames, what the fuck do they care about a film set in Japan
muh Asian American identity
Which is basically nothing. Say what you will about black Americans, but they at least built a culture. AAs have nothing.
Haha yes, take that American capitalist dogs
hating on the Great Wall
a film shot, produced, cast, and written inside China
a movie where the Chinks wanted Matt Damon as an MC just to get extra credibility
Gah why are these people so fucking retarded. I get it's hard to get a job with a major in sociology but don't make it suck for the rest of us.
i ain't clicking that shit nigga
i don't think wes gives two shits about politics
actually only the director, the cinematographers, most of the cast and part of the crew were chinese.
the movie was a US/China co-production with the involvement of many hollywood guys.
Still retarded to bitch about that tho.
What a time to be alive. Reviewers don't talk about movies, they talk about cultural appropriation in a japanese oriented plot film directed by a privileged cis male. I'm so tired of this shit. I wonder how many japanese movies these people has watched and how they cope with the fact that japanese cinema never has any problem with cultural appropriation. Kurosawa for example was highly influenced by western cinema and literature.
why are libshits so joyless and anti-freedom? have they ever heard of artistic license? this is a goddamn fiction motion picture, an auteur can do whatever the fuck he wants. i swear a god if i ever become a billionaire i will bankroll a blockbuster trilogy of blackface kino.
US/China co-production with the involvement of many hollywood guys.
Ah my bad, shouldn't have spoken too soon, it seemed like a Chinese only thing because I didn't see it advertised a lot in the West.
They don't care about the appropriation stuff. They didn't care about GitS either
The dogs, for their part, all speak clear American English, which is ridiculous, charming and a little revealing. You can understand why a writer as distinctive as Anderson wouldn't want his droll way with the English language to get lost in translation. But all these coy linguistic layers amount to their own form of marginalization, effectively reducing the hapless, unsuspecting people of Megasaki to foreigners in their own city.
Oh for fuck sake
what does JFC mean?
jew face cunt
Not a single fucking issue when he did the same thing with English culture in Fox
libturds don't even review movies, they go out of the way looking the ways to be offended, their rotten brains are literally wired that way. i wish there was a viurs that violently murders all leftists.
It is funny how they rag on Wes Anderson while simultaneously disenfranchising all of the Japanese that actually worked on the film and script.
Japan Fried Chicken
more like "Justed" Chang, right bros?
jesus fucking christ
they get offended by anything but they have no problem with offending christians
no sense of humour
These Asians remind me of another group....

They're a bunch of misreble cunts who have to make sure to be offended by everything. They also have to make sure everyone else is is joyless and misreble as they are. Fuck them.
Filipinos have the nutshack.
It's literally ALWAYS Asian-Americans.
