At last week’s “Writers for Migrant Justice” event in Reno, I presented an essay I’d been thinking about writing for a long time, explaining why Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) is an irresponsible film. Since I watched that film for the first time, the news has made the film more relevant as an example of the spread of misinformation through fiction.
I’ve since adapted that text for Medium. In this post, I explain the danger of stories that purport to be about real issues but indulge in problematic fantasies.
Thanks for reading!
