Benedict Cumberbatch has a new western out. In The Power of the Dog, a ‘Charismatic rancher Phil Burbank inspires fear and awe in those around him.’.
But in a new interview (via DailyMail) specifically to promote this western, Cumberbitch bizarrely launched a scathing attack on an entire gender. He told Sky News: ‘We need to fix the behaviour of men. You have to kind of lift the lid on the engine a little bit.
‘I think it’s ever relevant, and in a world that’s questioning and ripping into and finally pointing out the inadequacies of the status quo and the patriarchy, it’s even more important.
‘You get this sort of rebellion aspect, this denial, this sort of childish defensive position of ‘not all men are bad’. No, we just have to shut up and listen.’, he pontificated.
‘There is not enough recognition of abuse, there’s not enough recognition of disadvantages and, at the same time, somewhere along the line – maybe not now, but somewhere along the line – we need to do maybe what the film does as well, which is examine the reason behind the oppressive behaviour to fix the men.’
These people appear to truly live in a bubble, from the outside working class world. How completely removed from reality.
