Gus Van Sant United States, 2000

Brian O'blivion's rating of the film Finding Forrester

Really? A 16 year old (ALL 16 year olds are infantile teens with no perspective on how anything in the world really works, let alone how to write good prose) black kid from the Bronx who just happens to be a literary genius, despite the fact that there's nothing in his surroundings that encourages him into reading or anything remotely artistic or intellectual. To find all this silly is surely a sign of racism.
