What's Subversive About Avatar?


James Cameron was on "The View" Wednesday morning and he was quite frank about the premise and purpose of his film, "Avatar." He plainly explained it was anti-corporate and that his goal was to wrap that "subversive" message in an entertaining vehicle that America, or the world, would swallow whole:

JAMES CAMERON, DIRECTOR, 'AVATAR': Well, look — here's, here's — I think the film is definitely anti-corporate, you know, and I think that the corporations and the corporate lobbies are doing a huge damage to the country and the environment.

This is meant to wake folks up. Sure, sure, clearly. To me it's a very personal film in the sense that when I was a kid, you know, in high school it was the start of the environmental movement and I made a film in high school about pollution.
