What Do We Do With Great Old Films That Make Us Cringe Now?


A new question being asked by social commentators is what to do with beloved works of art come under attack because they feature behaviors that are now deemed offensive. According to Uproxx columnist Steve Bramucci, if you watch a film like "Revenge of the Nerds" today, "you're likely to cringe so hard you'll miss all the jokes." Some say that any criticism, such as Molly Ringwald's essay about the misogynistic and racist undertones in John Hughes' "Sixteen Candles," is a form of censorship. Or, as 'Simpsons' creator Matt Groening put it, 'people love to be offended.' But for Bramucci, this response is weak. He explains, "If you’re railing against even the littlest bit of critique over a movie, book, or show you love, the person it ultimately says the most about is you." https://ift.tt/2jNJKCB http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
