James Cameron was on "The View" Wednesday morning and he was quite frank about the premise and purpose of his film, "Avatar." He plainly explained it was anti-corporate and that his goal was to wrap that "subversive" message in an entertaining vehicle that America, or the world, would swallow whole:
JAMES CAMERON, DIRECTOR, ‘AVATAR’: Well, look — here’s, here’s — I think the film is definitely anti-corporate, you know, and I think that the corporations and the corporate lobbies are doing a huge damage to the country and the environment.
This is meant to wake folks up. Sure, sure, clearly. To me it’s a very personal film in the sense that when I was a kid, you know, in high school it was the start of the environmental movement and I made a film in high school about pollution.
