Hmm, but is it also less … Smarmy White Guy Cinema? Because that’s also the vibe I get from him. He’s like the uncomfortable relative at the holidays who’s seemingly liberal and altruistic but only as like a marker of his privilege. And also very, “I’m not racist, but….”

(I literally have no idea if there’s anything in his filmography to support this portrait, or if I just randomly put him in this box once and left him there.)


The Holdovers is definitely a "rich white kids have struggles too" narrative.
