As a kino fan I’ll make a confession - I’ve never seen Gone with the Wind. But in general, I do have somewhat conflicting thoughts on removals of controversial art. Obviously it’s not completely erased and banned, and it’s absolutely valid that certain art can (and does) invite people to glorify and romanticize things that should never ever be romanticized. But at the same time, it all threads too close to revisionism and erasure. We can’t allow ourselves to even place ourselves in a position where forgetting history could happen. Very troubling art did happen, and people need to use it as a means of educating themselves on why it’s absolutely wrong. But then again, who do we trust as capable of educating instead of romanticizing?

edit: apparently it will come back to hbo max with a disclaimer like those before old cartoons. imo this is absolutely a good way to go about it

edit 2: apparently the full statement is already in the article virgo posted but my dumb phone didn’t load the full page lmao

You aren't the only one. I haven't either. I remember my father watching it when I was a kid and remember it being a long movie but never watched it all the way through. I always wondered as a black man why he liked it so much. He did grow up in the South but still.

One of Kubrick's most memorable film IMO.

It's underrated in Kubrick's filmography. I personally like it better than Dr. Strangelove, Full Metal Jacket, and Clockwork Orange. Not as much as The Shining and 2001.
