Viggo Mortensen takes exception to the criticism of Green Book




While promoting his film Falling (on which he wrote, directed, scored, and is starring in), Viggo Mortensen revisits the criticism of Green Book (the film won the Academy Award for Best Picture in 2019) in an interview with the Independent:

“Much of the criticism that was leveled at that movie was not only unreasonable, but it was inaccurate, mendacious, and irresponsible. It’s based on a load of bulls--- and an axe to grind and little else. Does it affect what I’m doing, or how people perceive me as an actor? Maybe it does. But I can’t really do anything about that.”

He also says: “It’s become a cliché to say, ‘Is this movie going to be the Green Book of this year?’ Green Book has become a pejorative.”
