Commentary

Commentary (by JB):

This curious article seems to teeter on the edge of demanding that Hollywood should not make movies about criminals who are Jewish. This is reminiscent of the way in which the Israel lobby tries to censor reports of Israeli crimes against the Palestinians.
Abstract:

By downplaying the Jewishness of their scumbag heroes as much as possible, directors Scorsese and Russell have done us a favor.
