"The redemption of an American racist"?[edit]

I would question the description of the film as portraying "the redemption of an American racist". Walt affects to hate everybody. Race is only one characteristic that he criticises. He is actually not a racist, for he treats people equally, irrespective of race and despite the ostensibly racist taunts. He mocks and taunts his barber too. His confession shows that he is morally clean, and maintains extremely high standards.Royalcourtier (talk) 23:32, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

Article[edit]

I don't understand the reason for a page exclusively for a character from a film that, while successful and acclaimed, is not strongly influential in any way. For a character like Randle McMurphy, I understand the article, since he is a memorable character in both literature and film, and in a film widely thought to be one of the greatest. Commentary on Kowalski by critics and authors also doesn't justify the article, in my opinion. Is this articel really necessary? I'm not there. Message me! 20:38, 12 June 2015 (UTC)
