Hey, writers. Guess what you DON’T get to do when you see a film you dislike? Compare it to rape. I think the new Tintin film looks pretty appalling, but this is one of the most ludicrous reviews I’ve ever seen, and it’s incredibly offensive to survivors of sexual assault.
Coming out of the new Tintin film directed by Steven Spielberg, I found myself, for a few seconds, too stunned and sickened to speak; for I had been obliged to watch two hours of literally senseless violence being perpetrated on something I loved dearly. In fact, the sense of violation was so strong that it felt as though I had witnessed a rape.
