50 sfumature di American Sniper

Only a few weeks into its release, the film has been flattened into a symbol to serve the interests of an ideology that, arguably, runs counter to the ethos of the film itself. How much, if at all, should Eastwood concern himself with fans who misunderstand and misuse his work? If he, intentionally or not, makes a hero out of Kyle – who, bare minimum, was a racist who took pleasure in dehumanising and killing brown people – is he responsible for validating racism, murder, and dehumanisation? Is he a propagandist if people use his work as propaganda?

Credo che ogni opera d’arte si presti a interpretazioni, quindi anche a strumentalizzazioni. Quelle che non lo fanno, sono probabilmente troppo lineari e non consentono interpretazioni di sorta.
