Here are six reviews on Green Book:
The screenplay essentially turns Shirley into a black man who thematically shapeshifts into whoever will make the story appealing to white audiences - and that’s inexcusable.
Lawrence Ware New York Times
Green Book is effective and affecting while being careful to avoid overdosing its audience on material that some might deem too shocking or upsetting.

In a world that seems to get uglier every day, this movie’s gentle heart and mere humanity feel like a salve.

A bizarre fish-out-of-water comedy masquerading as a serious awards-season contender by pretending to address the deep wound of racial inequality while demonstrating its profound inability, intellectually and dramatically, to do that.

Sometimes life is stranger than art, sometimes art imitates life, and sometimes life imitates art. If life starts imitating hopeful art - that’s uplifting. That’s the goal of art, as I see it. “Green Book” uplifts.

- A whilst
- B which
- C whence
- D whether
- E whatever
