“Get Out” is the horror film to describe the “Racial Discrimination”, and it did work. “Racial Discrimination” is the thing people still will likely discuss today, so much so that many art work or an artist will participate this issue, and today, this movie “Green Book” will use another angle to discuss race itself.

As a winning movie, it won’t miss the part of “Politically correct”, but please don’t misunderstand me, just these type of the movie was always hard to not win any awards. I just quite curious the opinion of these judges, is they because of the audience so they change another comment method? Or is because that’s also “discrimination” if we don’t let these movies won any awards?
I know that’s very controversial, but that’s why I’m gonna review.
This movie not just about white people and black people, it also includes Italians, Asians, Indians and on and on, it presents most of the people’s stereotype, you say you didn’t realize? Think this movie just describe the dilemma of black people? I think you have kind of discrimination!
The Story is about in the 60s, an Italian white person named Tony who had driving garbage truck and working at the bar before, because of his physical strength, he always can deal some dispute, therefore he employed by a black pianist, Shirley, and becomes his bodyguard and assist him in performing. And Tony, who has always discrimination black people, and Shirley, who has high society etiquette, these two men start they 8 weeks journey.
What They Looks Like?
From the beginning of this movie, every supporting role, include Tony, they are all dissemination “the way it looks like”, I think the purpose is to irony everyone’s opinion. I believe most people can smile on there because after all, that just a movie, but it will be different if these words come from other people’s mouth… very strange huh?
Same as Shirley, the perfect etiquette to conform his pianist’s identity, is also to irony the people dissemination to the black people, and “Green Book” choose the funny way to present it. On one hand is to relieve the feeling of people, on the other hand, is also let people know, that will become a joke in that situation.
There are had two scenes in the story that to do more powerful irony, one is when Tony just get off the road for WC, he goes back to the car to take the wallet, one is when no one pays attention to Tony, he just take a green stone and put it in his pocket just because green stone drop on the floor.
That just like a sword and insert vigorously to many people’s heart, the thing we “dissemination”, if is our doing, then there is no problem? That’s also tell us people can’t be seen, nobody no one is born to be like.
‘You never win with violence. You only win when you maintain your dignity.’
– Don Shirley (Green Book)
That’s my top 5 good sentences in the movies of all time. This sentence showing to us not just about inclusive, it also means supreme wisdom. I think violence is still rampant even in modern day, Tony showing the way to solve things for modern people, fist or gun.
Violence always brings more violence, it never solves a problem at all, I even can bold to say, some people be deliberately let you use the violence, so they can put the indelible crime on you. It is same when that use on “dissemination”, only maintain your dignity so you can solve the problem.
I think that’s the lessons learned over time for Shirley, Because people always easy to incite by mood, resulting in it slowly deviation from the original starting point, and from the caring mood turn into the great anger, and starting the quarrel that unnecessary.
I can understand the mood like that, in my country, it has been happening similar things, and when people found out someone was intentional operation they’re mood, always is when they are already hurt so much, at that moment, you lost the quarrel and lost the dignity, and had already forgotten what you fight for.
Angel or Devil?
In the rain Shirley yelling to Tony: “The rich white people pay me to play piano for them, because that makes them feel culture, but as soon as I step off that stage, I go right there being just another N***a for them.”
This scene is the same concept as what I question to the judges, I have no intention to offend, but this scene just makes me think. I’m not an American, but in fact I’m not surprised when Trump be elected in 2016, Because I believe most people still has the old concept.
You can search for a large number videos about “Racial discrimination”, that’s sufficient let you know it still has the people like that in 2019. And the more people care about it, it just like a virus keeps spread on the internet and life.
I also believe that it has a person who fully believes in world peace, they will appear in those “Racial discrimination” video as a hero, just, how many people like that? And you are really wanted to protect the people who hurt, or you just wanna be a hero?
My thoughts maybe have a little dark, but after you watch this movie, you will realize how disgusting people can be, and they won’t realize they disgusting.
The Courage of Change
“Genius is not enough, it takes courage to change people’s heart”
– Oleg (Green Book)
We all need the courage of change, that’s the most respectable point of all the great people in the world……….ant that is, “make change”.
“Make change” was like shouting at the fine dining restaurant, my metaphor maybe kind of funny but very appropriate. In the era of the time, it definitely has many people keep pace with Shirley, but the people who are willing to stand up are very few.
Even some children are limited in ability before they have done it, I can’t imagine in that age, those kids who has dream, how they accept forced to let the era eliminate and not even have qualifications to work hard.
For my opinion, people will repel others, think about when you at the company or school, you always have some people you like, some people you don’t like, Isn’t that a form of discrimination? This not a big deal if you have “special vision” for some people, but be sure you already fully understand that person.
I guess this movie is seek a pure peace, with my article going to come to an end, now I have a little change on my opinion.
I think maybe the judges are want to be the guy who “trying to make a change”, Maybe this kind of the movie needs to promotion by this kind of the way, that’s will make more people can see the true meaning of peace, also the respect between people.
Like what I said, if I can change my mind for the judges in the short article, why can’t you?
at last, I recommend everyone to watch this movie, this is
The lesson you should take.
