Tags: report, watching
Needing something to watch that wouldn’t over-tax our brains with new stimulus, we opted for a re-watch. Since apparently i make Andy re-watch Miyazaki movies a bit, ummm, often1, we pulled out “Snatch”.
I think this is the last time i’ll be watching “Snatch”. Sure, it’s witty, fast-paced, nicely-plotted. But, (a) i am always uncomfortable with the ending, where the 3 black men are left holding the
bag body while 2 white men cruise right on by with both the dog and the diamond. And (b) i really rather suspect that Ritchie’s depiction of pikeys is horrible. If anyone has suggestions for interesting, respectful reading/viewing i should check out about Travellers/non-Roma gypsies/&c., please mention it in comments.
