Marie Claire’s Mehera Bonner Puts Up Her Dukes

“The thing is, I just don’t think Dunkirk is a very good movie—if your definition of the word movie is ‘moving images held together by a plot.’ It’s as if Christopher Nolan (sorry, “Nolan”) plucked out the war scene from a script, and was like ‘let’s just make this part extra long and call it a movie, lol.’ It’s so clearly designed for men to man-out over. And look, it’s not like I need every movie to have ‘strong female leads.’ To me, Dunkirk felt like an excuse for men to celebrate maleness—which apparently they don’t get to do enough. Fine, great, go forth.”

    Commentary by yet another individual whom has never created a thing. Historically, the film reflects the reality of the event. Liberals will never be satisfied until all venues reflect the form of revisionist history that they approve of. As a retired military member who has always honored the contributions of all of my comrades, regardless of race, creed or sex, I find the criticisms of this film for its lack of “inclusiveness” as feckless and moronic, clearly reflecting the intellectual breath and character of their authors.

“I think [technology has[ its made my life faster, it’s made the ability to succeed easier. But has that made my life better? Is it better now than it was in the eighties or seventies? I don’t think we are happier. Maybe because I’m 55, I really am asking these questions… I really want to do meaningful things! This is also the time that I really want to focus on directing. I think that I will act less and less. I’ve been doing it for 52 years. It’s a long time to do one thing and I feel like there are a lot of stories that I got out of my system that I don’t need to tell anymore. I don’t need to ever do The Accused again! That is never going to happen again! You hit these milestones as an actor, and then you say, ‘Now what? Now what do I have to say?'”

“If there’s one rule Hollywood has metaphysically proven in its century of experimentation, it’s that there’s no amount of money you can’t squander in the quest for hits.

“Netflix has spent the past couple years attempting to brute-force jailbreak this law. Its counter-theory has seemed to be, sure, a billion dollars doesn’t guarantee quality but how about three billion dollars? How about five billion dollars? Seven?

“This week’s latest cinematic opus to run across no-man’s-land into the machine-gun emplacements has been the Jared Leto yakuza movie ‘The Outsider.’ Once again, debuting on Netflix, another thing called a movie that at one glance doesn’t look like any kind of movie anyone has ever seen before, outside of off-prime time screenings at the AFM.

“If you’re working at a normal studio, you have one or two of these total misfires in a year and people start calling for your head. How many is Netflix going on? Fifteen? Twenty? This quarter? Any normal company would be getting murdered over results like that.”
