that all being said it's still unbelievably fucking funny that "the rights of humans who exist currently supercede the rights of humans who could potentially exist" is such a major theme i love it

im incapable of fully analyzing if i've fallen victim to the assumption that an American Man led plot Cannot be progressive, or if im watching a classic and fundamentally boring america man led plot attempt to be progressive by tacking female characters into important roles. anyway i hated it. it was a good movie. it sucked. the practical was sick. I don't think it was #thatDeep

BUT her role is still hugely matriarchal?? her success is celebrated with her kissing the man she wants to marry, her emotional ending scene is punctuated by the fact that she's surrounded by her children. and of course so is the role of the doctor?? the survives so she can begin the process of quite literally raising children???? im left completely unable to tell if im being played or not

and yet. and yet. it is undeniable that of the two children characters, the boy is the antagonist for clinging to his patriarchal complex ?? the girl is the heroine for scientific pursuits and condemnation of obstinance?? in fact we, the viewer are even played by her ""belief in ghosts"" is a frivilous, childish (read: effeminate) thing which turns out to be hugely significant ??

yet we cannot abstract this from her treatment in the rest of the film????? we cannot deny that the Real Main Character made the ultimate Manly sacrifice to preserve her goals, in laughably the same way that we evacuate "women and children first" because it is the man's job to suffer and die to ensure the survival of his women and his offspring. sorry don't read this thread. im having a time

we're presented with a doctor character who is heavily overshadowed by her father. she's reduced to a piece of sex appeal and/or an emotional mother character for most of the film. at yet her pilgrimage ends up being one of the most significant of the movie?? one ultimately unrelated to a romantic entanglement with the main character, one motivated by her emotions, one where she is empirically correct??

it's a movie that like. perfectly captures american culture from an """a-religious""" standpoint. it's the ultimate logic bro libertarian jerk-off piece. i hated so much of it and yet I can't help but be seduced by its complex and satisfying storytelling, and it's weirdly self contradictory cultural representations

so it is, given how very undeniably pro america and american culture the movie is, Really Fuckijg funny that arguably the CORE ethical question of the movie, IN a movie largely about parenthood is "are viable fertilized human eggs worth more than existing human life" AND that the answer would appear to be a pretty emotional "no"

okay. first we have to ask ourselves, is interstellar a good movie? the answer to that is obviously "all art is subjective". the follow up answer to that is "i personally think it's a well executed movie with some massive grinding flaws" the grinding flaws in question being "it's the same weird 'one american man who's smarter and more independent than everyone else' can abd will save the world' obnoxious bullshit"

i think the core redeeming feature of interstellar is that it's pro choice,,,,

The only things I remember about Batman Begins is Cillian Murphy's limpid blue eyes framed by unsettling cateye glasses, and big brutish Batman choking the much smaller man.
