It started out awesome. The introduction by the referee was promising and the audience responded to the movie enthusiastically at various comedic moments. I was looking forward to the debate after the movie about the ethics of watching, enjoying, and/or promoting a movie with a problematic (allegedly sexually abusive) star actor (James Franco). The debate quickly turned into a passionate, opinionated, and impolite pandemonium as students screamed their opinions until they were inevitably interrupted as soon as they said something remotely controversial or incoherent. I could hardly hear over the uproar and upheaval yet enjoyed the chaos and confusion from a socio-psychological perspective. I encourage students to attend at least one of these as nothing quite compares to the experience of this appropriately named Cinema Slapdown.
