Qualities Of Better Film #19 of 31: CONSIDERATION OF EFFECTS OF REPRESENTATION
CONSIDERATION OF EFFECTS OF REPRESENTATION: To a watch a movie is a real choice, even if a lot of the audience might have made it on impulse. As a choice, each choice the filmmaker demonstrates carries real weight. The choices are as much what is not shown as they are about what is shown. A movie that has one gender or race being the bad guys is not considering the effects of representation, and frankly neither is the film that delivers a unrealistic diversity of cast. Making movies is a huge responsibility and there is a definitive pleasure in witnessing a team that has embraced that responsibility to the fullest.
