Michael Bay does D.W. Griffith

I'm currently writing up a piece on Transformers 2 but thought I'd upload this extraordinary clip from the movie before I publish my article. For the record, I think Transformers 2 could be Bay's greatest film to date - but it's not without its share of problems. At its best, T2 is Bay's equivalent of Sergei Eisenstein's Strike. At its worst, it's disturbingly fascist and borderline racist. This short clip below represents one of the most jaw dropping examples of racism I've ever seen in a contemporary Hollywood film. The mind boggles.
