Let me first start out by saying I do not agree with all of the opinions that Bell Hooks states in her documentary. I think she herself is a bit racist and thinks that black people are represented well enough on the media and when they are they are not represented well. I think there are movies such as Ali with Will Smith that portray black people in a very good way. Although Hooks does teach us a lot of ways to look at films critically. She teaches us the ideas on how films do use racial profiling to get a response out of the audience watching. She also teaches us a bit on what themes we can look for in movies such as domestic violence, as in the OJ Simpson trial, and feminism power, as with Madonna's career. As much as I disagree with a lot of Bell Hook's ideas and theories, she does have a few good ones that make sense to me such as her story on Spike Lee's movie. It was a culturally moving movie that made a decent profit but it didn't make enough to be profound. Hooks uses a lot of racial profiling to explain movies and the extent that they impact culture. She also uses gender, like when it comes to the movie Kids. She explains that people remember the men and the raping scene, where as the women kind of go unnoticed. When Hooks talks about being enlightened witnesses when we watch representations it means that we the media around us and we are critically vigilant about the world we live in. This is the media that we are able to remove ourselves and understand the representation that media is creating for us. We understand how we are being represented and do not argue with how movies or television or books say we are. We just accept it. Overall, Bell Hooks documentary proved to be insightful and was interesting to watch.
