There is literal #Whitewashing (Dr. Strange, Ghost in the Shell) and figurative #Whitewashing when shows set in Asia center around a white actor (The Last Samurai, The Great Wall). If you don’t understand the subtleties, do not accuse me of idiocy.
“Figurative whitewashing” – is that the new buzz-term these people have invented in order to deflect the fact the the point of the Outsider is that it’s about an American war prisoner getting freed by the Yakuza thus he has a debt to repay only to get sucked into the Yakuza world? Like have they not even read THE FREAKIN’ TITLE????????????????????
PS: what these people should be more concerned about is whether or not this movie will be part of Netflix’s bad movie streak.
Cheshire Cat Studios is the home of what we hope is a mix of artistic integrity and dry humor. We share a passion for movies, games and other mediums but are looking to spread our reach into more original content in the future: investigative videos, satirical comedies, and animated podcasts. We like to think that we approach topics with a down to earth, analytical viewpoint and don’t play favorites.
