Director Taylor and genders obsession.


People in "The Help' movie support each others or fight. Black women help white people and some white people help to black women. Help, helper, helping are involved, who helps who?

We didn't see any black man in first half of movie and we saw black men when fighting changes to political or criminal after singular struggle between women left in back.

Political notion is not told so much in second part, too, singular relations between people, between black and white women.

I think director Tate Taylor made a belvedere, some funny, some tragedy and some politic.

Director and writer Taylor had made "The Winter's Bone' about 2 years ago. The Winter's Bone was the more powerful story and shooting. It was on some poor and dangerous American people live in provincial and it had more realistic telling.

"The Help' is more belvedere, Taylor caught a good line for guichet and I think he will go on with stories on issues-situations of USA society. He likes literature and you Americans can guess what he will make two years later.

He had created a powerful girl character with Jennifer Lawrence (Ree Dolly) and we had surprised with Lawrence performance and Dolly role. She looked for fathers bones like a boy.

And now Taylor is sensual again about sharing roles between genders in The Help movie. There isn't any black male in first part. I don't know why.

I waited long time to watch The Help and it was good but not such "The Winter's Bone'.
