Kubo and the Two Strings
This week, we watch the brilliantly animated Kubo and the Two Strings. This movie is enthralling and exceptionally well told, but it suffers from a classic case of Hollywood whitewashing. While we have yet to find evidence of this story as one that is traditionally Japanese, the gods and places certainly are. As a result, we constantly felt out of place and time. It’s too bad, because this one could have been amazing.
