It's because he's a fraud.

What is the date and time? This seems hard to find from the Stranger web site. I don't see the information in the article.

Soooooo, its ok for rappers to rap about killing cops as has been done many times, but remixing to a movie based on a controversial novel is wrong? Next remixing "Metropolis" will be an offense to the "99%" - oh wait, thats been done too. Charles doesn't really give much credit to the viewer or his intellect by todays standards - as opposed to those of 1915. But what seems clear is that by his standard, as long as art is not controversial, then art will be safe. Sounds a bit like "censorship" to me.

" Sounds a bit like "censorship" to me"

Then you aren't listening.
D.W. Griffith's BIRTH OF A NATION is readily available; this does not replace it or make it any more difficult to see the uncut original; nor does it claim to BE the original (the title is distinctly different).
calling this "censorship" is like calling THE GODFATHER, PART 2 a "censorship" of THE GODFATHER

Hmmm...I've seen the 1915 silent movie you are referenceing and I actually didn't find it racist...It actually covered some references to the life before the civil war and covers the horrors of the civil war,Lincoln's assassination at the Ford theater by Jon Wilkes Booth and a tale about how a group called the klansmen saved people in a small town from trouble and chaos from a evil gang...in short:good triumphing over evil with historic references...when I saw the posters for this guy making a remix,I laughed because you can't make a remix on a silent film,except for the music...what's next? Charlie Chaplin remix? LOL!

This movievwas made by white crackers. Adding bass and drum machines only gives the pale faces more power.

I saw Miller perform this in Cambridge several years ago. It was amazing; you should all go.

@3 Yes, this sounds exactly like the government, which Charles Mudede represents, coming in and forcibly destroying an ugly part of American cultural history. He's sending in his censorship board to destroy all copies, which is exactly the same as offering a criticism of the work.

Also, just as negative criticism is exactly the same as a government forcibly destroying, suppressing or otherwise censoring a work, rappers are the only people who have ever talked about doing violence against civil authority. Certainly there has never been a non-rapper who has said that it would be in their best interest or the best interests of the people generally to murder cops. Ever.

Certainly no militias or "sovereign citizens" have ever actually plotted to kill cops, only rappers talk about it.

I saw the same (live) rendition that @7 did (at Sanders Theatre almost a decade ago, right?). While Miller's post-show discourse was an amazingly vivid and stimulating distillation of multi-disciplinary cultural criticism infused with pop-relatability, the "remix" itself was surprisingly... inconsequential. He just doesn't do that much to the film, and what he does is fairly broad and obvious.

DJ Spooky: accomplished academic, invaluable public intellectual, kinda mediocre artist.

@3: Can you read? Did you read? "You will not leave this screening unmoved." Nowhere in this review is the remix referred to as 'wrong'.

Trollfail.

Why does this paper always start out with a trashy F-bomb? Classy, The Stranger

@12 use of foul language is a sign of low intelligence.

Just sayin.
