Commentary

Do the Right Thing (1989) meets Office Space (1999) meets Mood Indigo (2013), with a traditional pro-union leftist political bent, meme-cultural alienation and horses. The racial politics find an excellent tone but don’t get the details right. A Japanese character seems to be named “Son”, flubbing the honorific san, as if accuracy is only needed for the main character’s ethnicity.
