The Recently Although the academy won the Academy Award for Best Winner it certainly has not. Even when Green Book won the Oscars campaign, it earned some reviews that were from unfavorable to brutal and brutal, with the criticism predominantly based on allegations that The film was deaf due to its object.
Here is a survey of what some critics had to say about the highly controversial Green Book
Matt Goldberg, Collider and in
It hides in warm, blurry feelings that are not deserving and lessons that were not learned, I would rather have a movie that felt bad for a good cause than me
Whiteness is violence and films like Green Book act like a plaster aid for the deep, infected and purulent wound that is white and anti-blackness. "More not.

Cate Young, The Muse :
It could be argued that the film is based on real people limited by the history in the freedoms, that can take on the story. Given that the film was co-written by Lip's son Nick Vallelonga, it becomes clearer why the film tends to reject Lip's racism for the feel-good narrative of a deeply rooted intercultural friendship. In an attempt to fight and preserve his father's legacy, Vallelonga reveals the inherent problem with "racing movies" like this: it's always about letting white people off the hook for their individual roles in sustaining institutional damage.
Lawrence Ware, The New York Times :
I saw "Green Book" in a crowd of older white people – the exact audience this movie had in mind. When it was over, they clapped and commented on how good the movie had been. "That was the best movie I've seen in years!" A woman said as she walked with a smile on her face. I could understand why.
Do you remember when Green Book won the best picture? Man, that choice did not age well.

Finally a movie for anyone who has Beverly Hills Cop and thought, "Hmm. It's good, but it would be funnier if they put it in the deep south in 1962 and made Eddie Murphy a nasty concert pianist and Judge Reinhold an Italian-American bouncer! "
Pray for me. My husband has just set up the GREEN BOOK Screener because he needs to know what people are talking about. I repeat. I repeat GREEN BOOK against my will.

Todd VanDerWerff, Vox :
The award ceremony for the film has shown that director Peter Farrelly essentially for decided the central view of the film, namely that racism can be solved, if we only get to know each other better. Green Book is not a movie about what it's about. It's a movie that suggests that it's about heavy topics, but most of that time away. It's entertaining enough, but it's also very strange and evasive. I really can not believe that it is so popular in some circles, even considering how many white people (guilty!) Enjoy entertainment that frees them of responsibility.
Some of Green Book's best friends are black movies.  – Alex Seitz Forest (@aseitzwald) February 25, 2019
Alistair Harkness, The Scot :
When the youngest Oscar successes of 12 years a slave and Moonlight Proposed to the Academy The awards were racially progressive, culturally sensitive and artistic nature. The sudden appointment of Green Book as one of this year's leaders is a step backwards. In particular, it feels like a step back in time until 1990, when Driving Miss Daisy won the Oscar for Best Picture.
Justin Chang, LA Times :
"Green Book" is the worst picture Oscar winner since "Crash," and I'm not making the comparison easy. Like this 2005 film, Peter Farrelly's interstate buddy-dramatist is insultingly heavenly and hucksterish, a self-satisfied pitcher disguised as an olive branch. It reduces the long, barbaric and ongoing history of American racism to a problem, a formula, a dramatic equation that can be balanced and resolved. "Green Book" is an embarrassment; aunt_y_f_d_d_d_d_d_d_d_d_d_in_d_d_d_d_d_d_d_d_d_d_d_d_in_drea_dest_in_dean_teach_teach_download_deak_f_download_deak_dean_teach_fh_t_t_t_d = tunt_deak_deak_f_download_deak_deak_db_db_db2b299f2a.jpg% 252fimage% 254f90322% 4F12 252f7010e2f03 BC72 982b8b299f2a. 2fblueprint api production.s3.amazonaws "src =" https://mondrian.mashable.com/uploads%252Fvideo_uploaders%252Fdistribution_thumb%252Fimage%252F90322%252F7e0e2f03-4f27-4b12-bc72-982b8b299f2a.jpg%252Foriginal.jpg?signature=jm2J66VRJqB1_ss25MzuwqrESdM = & source = https% 3A% 2F% 2Fblueprint-api-production.s3.amazonaws.com "data-fragment =" m! 6252 "data-image =" https://mondrian.mashable.com/uploads%252Fvideo_uploaders%252Fdistribution_thumb % 252Fimage% 252F90322% 252F7e0e2f03-4f27-4b12-bc72-982b8b299f2a.jpg% 252Foriginal.jpg?
