“I understad why a lot of critics donu0026#39;t like this film, but at the same time I feel like theyu0026#39;re making up their minds about what they think the movie is – or should – be about. They (who disagree with the film) will say that it diminishes the horrors that the black community faced in America during the 50u0026#39;s – and because of that they think itu0026#39;s a bad film. But I thought it was a good film; in my opinion itu0026#39;s not a movie about Shirley and his struggles facing ruthless racism – itu0026#39;s about Tony Lipu0026#39;s psychologically reforming journey changing his mind about black people through the witnessing of Shirleyu0026#39;s experiences. And itu0026#39;s that central story line the critics are disagreeing with and eschews the whole film on the premiss that it shouldu0026#39;ve been about something else (Shirley journey – not Tonyu0026#39;s).u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThere are thousands – if not millions – of films about racism towards black people and their culture, and Green Book had a different perspective than the rest of them – by not focusing on the racism but on how the racism changed a man who wasnu0026#39;t a target of it. But thatu0026#39;s obviously a big no-no according to these critics.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eTo me Green Book is about a white man thoroughly changing his whole mindset about something that heu0026#39;d been condition to abide to his whole life.”
