    Clearly you’ve avoided it if you think the film has anything to do with the white saviour trope. There’s no need to get so worked up about something you’ve made up completely.

      Whatever the movie is, the trailer sure as heck set the movie up as a tale of a white man defending the tan people. And yeah I get worked up after dealing with decades of racism and erasure of my people

        the fuck are you going on about? who is the “white savior” in this movie?

        i just watched the trailer, and jesse plemmons isn’t even in it. he didn’t even show up in the film until near the very end.

        go complain about something you actually understand instead of whining about the existence of a movie that very explicitly goes out of its way to not do the things you accuse it of doing.

        I’m sick of that guy being in everything.

        dicaprio has been in 5 movies over the last decade, i would hardly call that “being in everything”.

        @Son_of_dad I can see why you might think that it’s going to be an example of that trope if you only saw the trailer; our expectations tend to colour our interpretation, but no. He’s anything but.

        Indigenous receptions of this film are very mixed - some positive, some negative, but in a case like this, when there are some Ossage people who consulted on it and are happy with it, I think it’s better to keep an open mind instead of dismissing their view out of hand without seeing it.
