Entertaining films across genres are increasingly — and unflinchingly — tackling issues like race and the politics of identity. I could see and I could feel how racism comes from fear and from insecurity, and from ignorance. I never saw it from that perspective before.
I always saw it from the perspective of evil. Sometimes it is evil, when it crosses a line, but ignorance and evil are like twin brothers.
