Although it may seem impossible, not everyone liked it. Full Moon Assassins from Martin Scorsese. Carlos Boyero is one of the different voices, the other coming from North America. We are talking about an actor Devery JacobsBorn in Canada and Belongs to the native Mohawk community. the translator of Revervation dogs Scorsese's depiction of violence against the Native American Osage people is uncomfortable.
Devery Jacobs made it clear in the X thread (formerly Twitter): “This film is painful, relentless, grueling and overly graphic”.
I have thoughts. I have strong feelings.
This movie was painful, exhausting, unrelenting and overly graphic.

Devery Jacobs added, “Being native, This movie was hell to watch. Imagine the worst atrocities committed against your ancestors, and then you have to watch a movie that is clearly full of these atrocities, the only respite coming in the form of 30 minutes of murderous white men talking or planning murders.
Most notable for Devery Jacbos is the work of native actress Lily Gladstone (pictured below with Martin Scorsese), for which she is asking for an Oscar.
However, Devery Jacobs chides Scorsese for giving more density to the white male characters in the film. It is (we infer) Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro.
In X he assures us: “If you look at it in proportion, each of the Osage characters is painstakingly drawn, while the whites are given much more script and depth.”.”
Scorsese's depiction of violence is very problematic for Deverie Jacobs. He sees “no honor or dignity” in clearly showing the crimes and murders committed against the natives. And the killing of women, which Scorsese revealed in all its brutality, seems to Dever Jacobs to “normalize” feminicide.
The most devastating criticism
Devery Jacobs' long theme is one of the most devastating challenges ever made publicly for Full Moon Killers, garnering rave reviews. Masterpiece is the term most often used to define a Martin Scorsese film.
For Devery Jacobs, there is a fundamental problem: Scorsese is a white man who approached the tragedy of his native people from a white man's perspective.. The Canadian actor defends portraying Native people simply as victims because they are so much more: “Our pride in being Native, our languages, cultures, joy and love is much more interesting and humane than showing the horrors inflicted by white men. “
And another message from Devery Jacobs to current Oklahomans: “A huge real-life ‘Fack You' to white Oklahomans who still enjoy blood-stained rights.”.
A very interesting reflection from native identity. And this isn't the first time Scorsese has been asked about his penchant for sadism when dealing with violence. Is it healing or unhealthy to reveal certain gruesome details? Either way, The Full Moon Killers is one of the best movies of the season, one of those movies that you have to go see to be part of the general conversation.
