Interesting article—especially in view of the racism debate—about the reception of Avatar in China.

Posts across China's blogosphere reveal Avatar really has struck a chord with the oppressed masses. Its fave blogger, a "20-something writer and race-car driver" named Han Han, noted: "For audiences in other countries, such brutal eviction is something outside their imagining. It could only take place on another planet or in China."

A Cup of Green Tea chipped in with: "They are very much alike. For instance, the conflict in the film also starts with land. When real estate developers want a piece of land, the local residents must move away; if they decline to leave, then real estate developers will resort to violent ways."

The blogger suggested: "I strongly advise real estate developers and urban administrative inspectors see the movie and learn from it."
