TheMysteriousMrEnter (commonly known as Mr. Enter) posted a review of the Pixar animation Turning Red on April 14th, 2022.
Mr. Enter makes the claim in one section of the review that the movie, which is set in Toronto, Canada, in 2002, chooses not to acknowledge the effect of the terrorist events of September 11, 2001, on the sociopolitical climate in Western countries.
Over 68,000 people watched the film in just five days.
Turning Red is a mixed bag
Less than a year have passed since the September 11 terrorist events when this movie takes place. I bring this up because it significantly changed the culture at the time, which makes this movie seem especially out of touch with the times.
Even though the director was born and raised in the year 2002, it is the only literal explanation for why this film is specifically set in that year.
Yes, this movie is set in Canada and not the United States, but paranoia was rampant throughout the Western World at the time, including Canada, America, the UK, and much of Europe.
It served as the decade's central topic. I mean, I can see why you might not want everyone to be that terrified because that would go against the mood the movie is trying to create.
However, if you were genuinely there and if you do remember the time period, you then have very embarrassing situations.
