I’m not going to spoil the ending to “Million Dollar Baby.”
But for those of you who know how it ends, and think that the film is advocating such behavior, listen to Clint Eastwood’s sharp retort:
In his interview with the Los Angeles Times, Eastwood says:
I’m just telling a story. I don’t advocate. I’m playing a part. I’ve gone around in movies blowing people away with a .44 magnum. But that doesn’t mean I think that’s a proper thing to do.
The protests are ridiculous and need to stop. We need to respect art when it offers us important issues to grapple with, important questions to explore. When we declare that art is propaganda and protest it, we’ll have lost our credibility when the real propaganda piece comes along.
