His films are often heavily criticised for their bludgeoning social commentary, but that was honestly my favourite thing about ol' George. Despite enduring a lot of mockery for his heavy handed approach to it, he continued to stuff his movies full of criticism and commentary on racism, sexism, classism, consumerism, capitalism, military worship and patriarchy. He routinely cast women and people of colour in leading roles, and shunned stereotypical representations. No apologies made.
RIP George, you goddamn trailblazer.
