TOPIC: Is Film Criticism Becoming Too Politically Correct?
Not too long ago movies were primarily reviewed by older white men. Now with the Internet and social media, we have more diverse perspectives than ever before. Movies are being judged not just on their artistic merits or entertainment value, but also their social message and cultural awareness. Is that a fair standard? Or is it establishing a political litmus test that could limit free expression?
