So David Brooks, one of the few Republicans I actually like, has written more eloquently about Avatar and all its problems than I could manage, identifying it as one of the many films with a White Messiah Complex.

This bit made me laugh rather hard

"The peace-loving natives are at one with nature, and even have a fiber-optic cable sticking out of their bodies that they can plug into horses and trees, which is like Horse Whispering without the wireless technology. Because they are not corrupted by things like literacy, cellphones and blockbuster movies, they have deep and tranquil souls.

The natives help the white guy discover that he, too, has a deep and tranquil soul."
