Midsommar (film, no real spoilers)
Finally the Swedish dude at work went to see Midsommar.
Apparently at the beginning of the movie, when they're driving through Sweden and the camera turns upside down, there's a sign along the road in Swedish that says stop mass immigration.
Interesting that there's no subtitles for this - only Swedish speakers would notice it. Sets a slightly adjusted tone.
Mum keeps lending me MB novels, currently reading Eating People is Wrong (1959).
It's probbo in myriad ways - although he does satirise British sensibilities, he uses other cultures and people of colour only as devices. My take is that he only envisaged people like him reading his books.
Having said that, for a 60-year-old book it is an incredibly illuminating portrayal of liberal white guilt, portrayed perhaps more honestly (if that's the right word) than one would today.
