When Christopher Nolan sat down to produce “Dunkirk,” he sought to make a historically accurate movie depicting one of the most intense battles in WWII, but according to one feminist, historical accuracy is too manly so the movie sucks.
Mehera Bonner, who writes for Marie Claire, took to her keyboard to decry “Dunkirk” as “basic” while expressing indignation at the lack of female leads. Not only that, she claimed the movie screams “men-only” and that it’s “designed for men to man-out over.”
Who the hell gives these people a platform?
From the Daily Caller:
Writing for Marie Claire, Mehera Bonner declared “Dunkirk” to be “basic.” “And look, it’s not like I need every movie to have ‘strong female leads.’ Wonder Woman can probably tide me over for at least a year and I understand that this was dominated by brave male soldiers. I get that,” she wrote, before slamming the film for its “general vibe.”
Despite enjoying the film’s intense moments and even the performances of its actors, including One Direction’s Harry Styles in his first big screen appearance, the Marie Claire writer slams Dunkirk for being “designed for men to man-out over.”
“The tenor of the people applauding it just screams ‘men-only’,” she continued, citing that the only reason male critics liked it was because it allowed them to feel manly.
Bonner continues: “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, but if Nolan’s entire purpose is breaking the established war movie mold and doing something different—why not make a movie about women in World War II?” The Marie Claire writer argues that it’s the responsibility of top-tier directors like Nolan to make the films she wants more of.
Bonner isn’t the first liberal to get upset over “Dunkirk,” unfortunately. The week the movie opened in theaters, Brian Truitt of USA Today decried the movie’s lack of diversity and equality, Breitbart News reported.
Dunkirk is a great movie but there aren’t enough “women” or “people of color” in it, according to a review in USA Today.
The movie – with a cast including Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, and former One Direction singer Harry Styles – has been given a slew of five-star reviews for its vivid, nail-biting depiction of the evacuation of the British Expeditionary Force from Dunkirk in 1940.
But though USA Today’s reviewer praised it too, he couldn’t resist giving it a little rap on the knuckles about its shameful lack of diversity and equality:
The trio of timelines can be jarring as you figure out how they all fit, and the fact that there are only a couple of women and no lead actors of color may rub some the wrong way.
Yes, it’s true that Dunkirk’s leading roles are indeed dominated by white European males.
Of course it is. Do you know why?
Because at the point in history – actual history, not the made up sh-t they teach at progressive indoctrination centers called colleges – white European males dominated Great Britain’s military and “Dunkirk” is a historically accurate depiction of the events that transpired.
But that’s the left for you; it’s more important for them to be culturally relevant than historically authentic, which is the illogical, bizarre train of thought cultural Marxists possess.
