“This film was painful, grueling, unrelenting and unnecessarily graphic,” Jacobs said on X.
Canadian star Devery Jacobs is sharing her unfiltered thoughts about the new Martin Scorsese flick Killers Of The Flower Moon starring Leonardo DiCaprio, taking to social media platform X (formerly known as Twitter), posting that the film and Scorsese are “painting Native folks as helpless victims without agency.”
Her thread on X, which has over 807,000 views, begins with her stating the movie was “painful, grueling, unrelenting and unnecessarily graphic.”
“Being Native, watching this movie was f***ing hellfire,” she posted, referring to the graphic deaths of First Nations characters, specifically the women characters in the new movie.
