Enough with these “based on a true story” crap


It’s even rated PG-13....and it looks generic.....Oscar Isaac’s career is on the decline.

I thought it was weird that they would cast light-brown colored Ben Kingsley to play a pale Teutonic Central European Nazi. Given the right makeup hue it could work but the trailers make him look more like Ghandi doing a Nazi cosplay

reply

Kingsley isn't light brown, if he is it falls in the white European spectrum.

reply

Well then I guess Turks, Pakistanis, Egyptians, Afghanis, Arabs, and North Africans like Quaddaffi are European too based on your subjective scientific catchphrase.

Like Omar Sharif, an Egyptian who played Russian or Rami Malik another Egyptian who played French?

reply

Sure, another brownie. Why is it with a lot of Whites being afraid of being called Brown? They exist and NO, they're not "olive skin complected". LOL

I did not see the movie yet. Is it any good? I saw the documentary. I also saw parts of the Eichman trial on Netflix in The Eichman show. Does the movie follow the documentary. I was very young but I do remember seeing Eichman on the news when they caught him because it was a very big deal. Am I going to be disappointed with Kingsley since I know what Eichman looks like.

reply

You do realize that Eichmann himself was often harassed for being mistaken as a Jew? He had a dark complexion and a hook nose, and even had the nick name of “the little Jew”.

Aw, poor widdle Adolf

I’m not suggesting we should sympathy for Eichman but pointing out that Kingsley’s appearance is congruent with the subject of his portrayal.
