#DryerBuzz — We tried to watch Mudbound. May have to give it a second pass another time. This day wasn’t that day. We only leaned in about fifteen minutes in after we pressed play. Then came the n-word, race and prejudice to the point we were like — not today! Looks like it could be a great film, but must the struggle always come in comparison with white versus black. That ain’t diversity. Not today Mudbound.
Did you Buzz it or Bash it? At what point does the movie get beyond angry white male and an n-word overconsumption script to redemption? Clearly the two culture survived war abroad and at home to make it to today. But how do we enjoy this look back in Mudbound? Bad timing?
