A man called horse

Culture clash movies are practically a genre in themselves. They can subvert every known genre in moviedom and turn its conventions upside down, making it a culture clash movie instead. Wasn’t „King Kong“ one of the first culture clash movies? From high drama to absurdist comedy, from harsh documentary to psychologically nuanced auteur cinema to roaring blockbuster, the culture clash movie tells us a lot about human experience and the bond we all share. Some of them are, of course, heavy on cliché, but the good ones don’t have to rely on that. A culture clash doesn’t have to turn into a culture war either. Anyone for a „remix“?

FR – Un aristocrate anglais se fait capturer par le peuple sioux. Son attitude d’homme blanc finit par faire place à un regard plus nuancé, respectueux, pour finalement culminer dans une scène d’initiation qui laisse le public pantois.
