Anti-racism messages embedded throughout.  You missed them i guess.

I mean, ok, there's a black guy and a white guy and they're friends. And in one of the episodes the villain is a racist South African diplomat, and a South African secretary who is ok because she's not racist and sleeps with Mel Gibson.

I think that if this is the standard for being a socially aware film, then everybody's socially aware. I mean, Wonder Woman and Mad Max:Fury Road are full of pro-feminist messages,  Waterworld and Godzilla have an environmental message... I mean... it's setting the bar pretty low, don't you think?

...

So you never did actually elaborate your own thoughts on the "value" thing we were talking about. What gives a film value?  You clearly feel that Amour is valuable, I'd like to hear why.  I'm not suggesting it isn't, I just want to hear your thoughts on what that value is.
