You’ve probably heard of the movie Exodus: Gods and Kings, which comes out on Friday.
I will not be reviewing this movie. I will not be watching this movie. I don’t need to do either of those things because the promotional photos and casting announcements tell me everything I need to know: The way the movie was made is fundamentally racist and erases both POC and Jews (and specifically Jews of color).
