Anne Helen Peterson Wrote a Good Buzzfeed Article about Whiskey Tango Foxtrot

She deals with the problems with the film, but I don’t think she gets super soap box-y about it. But, boy are people quick to hop into the discussion section and grump about how her “desire to be offended” must make everything unwatchable for her. How terrible it must be seeing “through prejudice-finding goggles.” “Can you find enjoyment in anything that isn’t aligned with your personal ideology?”

It’s even more bizarre because the woman has PhD in media studies. This is what she does and not part of some overreaching desire to force the world to conform to her views of social justice. People get so sensitive about film critique. Sometimes, it is both fun and useful to dismantle something and look at its parts.
