Kung Fu Panda

Kung Fu Panda ★★★

good cartoon about fate after modernity -- you have what is basically an attempted antidote to the Karate Kid of the '80s which signals the post-cold war liberal order's turn to Californianism and Western spirituality. It seems like nothing, but the film's villain is the Nietzschean, and the film's liberalist replacement for it (pervading every cartoon Hollywood has ever produced) where each has their proper place in the social order, everyone carves out their own particular identity, including class position, is less emphasized here than elsewhere.
