why avatar is screwed up solidarity and ...
A fantastic analysis of what is going on with white guilt in Avatar and many other sci fi movies, here. Utterly worth the read.
And, in the continuing effort to turn Avatar into some real solidarity, there was a campaign on to get James Cameron (the writer and director) to mention a real Avatar like struggle in Ecuador against Chevron at the Oscars. Who knows if he would have done it, because he lost to his ex-wife, Kathryn Bigelow, who amazingly is the first woman to win best director. What year is this?
