It's a crazy world, right? One minute, we're watching Looking for Mr. Goodbar, Cruising, and Blazing Saddles, the next minute, those movies are called out for slut shaming, appropriating leather daddy culture, and racism.
Somehow we're going backwards on the self-policing of ourselves. My #1 and #2 movies are The Bad News Bears ('76) and Sixteen Candles (which I wrote about here last year). Both highly offensive by today's standards, but both movies were of their time. Still, to admit you like these movies around some people is like commenting social suicide.
Anyway, what movie could never be made to day, either for fear of upsetting someone with a Twitter account and a lot of time on their hands, or because producers and movie studios would never risk the money.
Or maybe I'm looking at this the wrong way -- is society better off being wrangled by a collective, group thought/action?
