Ok so I was coming back home and a guy was hitting his ex girlfriend or girlfriend and calling her puta in the middle of the street and NO ONE WAS DOING ANYTHING TO HELP HER and I asked him to leave her alone and he said “I can do whatever I want with her” and slapped her in the face while she was trying to punch him and I swear I never felt so angry in my life, I was so so so mad at him and I punched him so hard and then this girl started to kick him and a cop saw us and arrested him  I’ve never felt so good in my whole life I literally don’t know how it happened but I feel great, my heart is beating sooo fast I feel like I’m going to pass out.

I hate 2003 movie Lost In Translation and you should too

exai:

So, for a while now I’ve been making scattered posts about how much I hate this movie, and when asked why I replied: well, it’s fuckin racist (and misogynistic as well we’ll talk about it).

Dropping my trademark lowercase typing for a more legible text here but we’re in for a wild ride. I’ve also been asked: how is the movie racist? Could you elaborate? So here’s the essay.

How is Lost In Translation racist?

I’m sticking to some sort of (shudders) academic but also handy and organised plan here to explain the whys and hows and what makes this movie that a lot of teens and older teens, and olderer not-teens consider deep, relatable, original, good, gorgeous, whatever, a 100 minute constantly and unapologetically racist piece of trash of a movie.

I think we’ve all figured out even by reading the synopsis to whom the aforementioned racism is directed to: it’s us, the Japanese. And yeah for once I’m gonna take the liberty to speak for all of us because let’s be real, this movie is outrageous.

3 Important Points as to How Lost In Translation is racist:

  1. THE WHITE CHARACTERS: the characters themselves are typically “white in a ‘foreign’ country”: entitled, ignorant, racist. I am gonna talk about our two main characters, Charlotte (portrayed by our beloved confirmed zionist Scarlett Johansson) and Bob (portrayed by our favourite wife-beating, multiple time cheating asshole Bill Murray) but also the secondary characters such as Charlotte’s boyfriend or that other girl whose name I totally forget.
  2. THE MOVIE ITSELF AND ITS RUNNING JOKES: something I hadn’t noticed until I rewatched the movie a few days ago for the sake of making this post, there are many, many awfully racist running jokes throughout the movie. It actually angered me a lot. Here I will talk about how the movie itself, how some visual elements and how the plot unravels reveals a lot of racism and misogyny.
  3. THE JAPANESE CHARACTERS: now this is where it gets tricky. truth is, no importance is accorded to any Japanese person in this movie, despite being set in Japan. Fishy huh? This point is kinda tied with the second one but I think I can elaborate on the absence of a Japanese POV, and how this extends to other movies where the setting and its inhabitants serve as a prop to the white story the white movie wants to tell.

slenderwrists: What's your favorite multiple choice-based indiepop song? Obviously everyone loves "C Is The Heavenly Option" but "Say Yes If You Love Me" by Acid House Kings is really good too.

(cute!)

both of the songs you mentioned are, like, paramount examples, i feel

but another contender could be ‘i don’t know what to say’ by — although not distinctively ‘indiepop’ — the magnetic fields

i could say i want you, that would be a bore

maybe in a font you haven’t seen before

i could say i’ll haunt you till your dying day

i could tease and taunt you, but what would i say? etc
