Mexican director Guillermo del Toro hopes his new film The form of Water— a love story “between a girl and a sea monster being held captive by the U.S. authorities” [??] — can help mend a “broken political system” following Donald Trump was chosen president of the USA. So broken…it is like cancer.
Speaking to at the Toronto International Film Festival, del Toro whined: “It is like a cancer. We’ve got a tumor now…That doesn’t mean that the cancer began with that tumor. It was gestating for so long…The pendulum swung back 30 years now in the previous year and a halfdozen. It is very, very bothersome that so many horrible things can be manifest.”
The Mexican manager said that his sea-monster love story aims to save America from Trump: “The notion is to state, which was then, and that now, and I really do hope that the planet continues long enough that we can begin fixing it again.”
Like many on the Left, del Toro can not endure the “Make America Great Again” nostalgia, seeing in it a treacherous white fantasyland. “If you were white, Anglo-Saxon and Protestant, it is was a terrific time to be living. In the event you were not, if you were anything else, it was not,” del Toro said.
He asserts that some may have been surprised at the Trump occurrence, however, the Mexicans were not: “I’ve seen, for many individuals, this thing began two decades back. But if you’re Mexican, and you crossed the border, they [anti-immigration activists] never really went away…they’ve been latent all of this time.”
It is interesting that today our governmental system is seen by Hollywood as broken, when it appeared to be nice both times Obama has been elected into office. It seems that the only thing is that the left and Hollywood like to keep overplaying — the exact same record accusing his supporters of bigotry, sexism, homophobia, racism and divisiveness and Trump.
