    Did Ridley Scott’s “Exodus” movie give the Sphinx a white/European makeover?

    The backlash against Ridley Scott’s Exodus is gathering momentum. After Noah’s mixed reception earlier this year, more and more people are sick of seeing movies with “whitewashed” casts: White actors representing historical figures who almost certainly were not white.

    The latest accusation of Exodus whitewashing relates to someone who technically isn’t even a character: the Sphinx.

    The likeliest explanation is that the sculpture in this picture is not the Sphinx, but is in fact a statue of Ramses. This means that it would have been based on actor Joel Edgerton’s face. 

    Unfortunately, this just makes the whitewashed casting even more blatant, because real statues of Ramses II simply do not look like that. So while Exodus may not have made a “white version” of the Sphinx, Egyptian culture is still being erased and rewritten to fit in with the film’s predominantly white cast of actors.

  3. So I went to see a vaudeville melodrama of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde tonight as a birthday present and they had a whole lot of olios (musical interludes between scenes that have no connection to the plot) and one of them was a woman who went “People say women are like weather vanes who can’t ever settle so what if I just marry a male quartet who will sing to me always, each man can be each point on the compass in that analogy” and that lady had it figured out

    Man nobody trusted me with adulthood until about 3 years ago. I was 23. *whispers* I still don’t trust me with adulthood, I’m an awful whiny adult.

    good to know I’m not alone in this. Good, good.
