I’m working on a piece about Holocaust fatigue—vis a vis “X-Men”—and one of my favorite articles on the subject is an insightful and prescient essay by New York Times film critic A.O. Scott, from 2008:

“Hollywood trades in optimism, redemption and healing, and its rendering of even the most appalling realities inevitably converts their dire facts into its own shiny currency.”
