When you open up twitter to find Jared’s been trending… welp. Tho, it could always be worse?

Yes, the character, Nick Lowell, is American and Caucasian, and yes, he’s joining the Yakuza as “The Outsider” – but it’s way more complicated than that…

What complicates this more is the fact Jared’s The Outsider was directed by a Danish director who’s never directed outside of Denmark/Danish. Sure, he can do all the necessary research and his heart and vision can be coming exclusively from a place of reverence, but he can never really capture Japanese culture from a truly authentic angle. He is actually the real Outsider here.

The most unfortunate news is that before Zandvliet came onboard, the film was most-recently tied to (and ultimately abandoned by) revered Japanese Director Takashi Miike. If he had still gone forward with this film, and it had his backing/support as a Japanese man, I bet the controversy and outrage over the story we’re seeing now wouldn’t be as vocal…
