Wes Anderson’s animated feature Isle of Dogs scored an impressive 93% on Rotten Tomatoes but its great ratings and talented cast don’t matter, because it’s 2018.
If an English AMERICAN white man like Anderson depicts Japanese culture, it will be labeled “cultural appropriation” by SJWs who can’t go a week without complaining about a slight to any identifiable group that isn’t white and/or Christian.
It’s hard to imagine that even the most spineless snowflake could find this film offensive because we’re at a place where if you make a movie set in Asia, then the cast and crew must all be Asians.
But to all those milquetoast millennials and their allies crying about cultural appropriation in Hollywood these days, perhaps some perspective might help.
Watch as I share my top three examples of the most outrageously miscast actors when it comes to portraying members of a different culture.
Maybe those, and various other films from yesteryear, were guilty of wince-inducing moments of cultural appropriation, but Isle of Dogs?
If you truly think this animated film is guilty of such a slight, then I think you need to get a life!
