White Mythology and the Movie 300
Posted by Jack Stephens on March 18, 2007
Michael Lujan blogs about the movie 300:
300 can be encapsulated in two words, white mythology. Or the development of truth claims, which create a circular self-aggrandizing relationship between an infinite number of historical moments and a particular version of the present, meant to both explain the whiteness of the present, and infuse that newly whitened present with an authority, eternal viability, and the ability to act as the edge of History.
