Alex Garland believes that the true message of his new film, “Civil War,” may not be fully understood by many.

When Civil War was released in the United States, many considered it to be “apolitical,” but director Alex Garland disagrees.

Garland wanted to create a stir with Civil War, and he has certainly achieved that. The film was released in various territories last week, including the United States where it has sparked public attention.

The reaction to this second civil war depicted in the film in a country with deep internal conflicts was expected. However, one of the common criticisms after the premiere is that the movie, starring Kirsten Dunst, is “apolitical.”

Garland strongly disagrees with this viewpoint and finds it frustrating that critics are labeling his work as such.

In a recent interview with Inverse, Garland expressed his thoughts on the “apolitical” nature of Civil War, stating that it is about leaving the interpretation to the audience.

The film features a stellar cast including Kirsten Dunst, Jefferson White, Wagner Moura, Karl Glusman, Cailee Spaeny, and others.

Civil War will hit Spanish cinemas this Friday, April 19, 2024, allowing viewers to decide for themselves whether it is truly apolitical or not.
