I found this week's readings in class to be very interesting, especially the reading and the discussion about Forrest Gump. I think overall it was a very interesting analysis of the film. After our discussion in class I began hovering over the idea that was brought up in class about the politics of the film along with the ideas presented in Monday's reading as well. I wonder how people would view Forrest Gump, if the main character didn't have any disabilities. Would the film even have been made? Is it our sympathy for Forrest that helps us enjoy the movie as we watch him leave his imprint on important moments in our country's history and would that enjoyment be diminished if Forrest didn't have his disability?
