    Absolutely loved it. Went into it having only the most basic knowledge of the events it portrays. It’s kind of like a reverse murder mystery, where the who, how and why are known and the mystery is whether or not people will get convicted for it…

    I loved the length of it, which really let the characters sit and breathe a bit. I was enjoying every minute of it. Heck, I might just see it twice. I’m sure it’ll do well with the awards.

    I avoided it because I’m sick of the white savior/I can’t relate to a movie unless there’s a white, male character as the lead, bullshit that Hollywood pulls. I know it’s based on a book, but I’m just sick of it, and DiCaprio, I’m sick of that guy being in everything.

      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

          @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.

          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”.

      The movie is literally about white people abusing the trust of the Osage, scamming and killing them for their land and money. No white saviour in that.
