A really excellent critque of The Lone Ranger movie by Jesse Wente for CBC's Metro Morning: "A Step Backward" Good interview -- only about 7 mins long too.
Wente touches on Depp's Rolling Stone interview and his past relations with Aborignal Peoples, and specifically notes the Depp wanted to remake this moving as a jumping off point for Hollywood to incorporate Indigenous People and represent them in a non-racist view.
Wente makes the remark of : "good intentions don't always equal a step forward"
What is almost laughable is Depp's want/need to "give Native Americans more spotlight" but then playing a role for an indigenous person himself. And, playing that role the same stereotyped and historically inaccurate way!
