Is there anything feminists won't whine about?
Marie Claire writer Mehera Bonner recently “reviewed” Dunkirk and wrote that her main issue with the film was “that it's so clearly designed for men to man-out over”:
“...the packaging of the film, the general vibe, and the tenor of the people applauding it just screams 'men-only'—and specifically seems to cater to a certain type of very pretentious man who would love nothing more than to explain to me why I'm wrong about not liking it.”
Bonner then rambled on about how the film felt like an excuse for men to celebrate themselves:
“I guess congratulations are in order for Nolan managing to unite high-brow male critics and very annoying people on Twitter under a common bromance, but to me, Dunkirk felt like an excuse for men to celebrate maleness—which apparently they don't get to do enough.”
She then even went on to practically insult legendary director Christopher Nolan writing:
“...if Nolan's entire purpose is breaking the established war movie mold and doing something different—why not make a movie about women in World War II? Or—because I know that will illicit cries of 'ugh, not everything has to be about feminism, ugh!'—how about any other marginalized group?”
SOUND OFF in the comments: Did you see Dunkirk and what did you think of it?
