    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    Despite being about an immigrant family, being lead by a famous Chinese movie star and referencing many of her (and other) Chinese movies, Everything Everywhere All At Once is deeply American in the worst possible way. Beyond all the intentionally pointless guff—much of it as Reddit as anything ever put on screen—it has a message as banal as "be nice" but more importantly "you can do anything" just as long as you believe in yourself; there is no material reality, there is no class system, there is no politics, literal economic problems can be overcome metaphorically, the American dream logic expressed as stupidly as possible.

    The Chow Hound

    I'm not sure if this Private Snafu short is actually subversive or if it's so deeply entrenched in the American Military ideology it ends up looking that way—though considering it was commission by and for the Army it's hard to imagine Tashlin taking any chances—it's about a cow character who signs up to war and is literally turned into meat; the injustice is that Snafu doesn't eat his dead body, that it wasn't put to sufficient use in the War Effort.

    The Death of David Cronenberg

    Pretty galling that Cronenberg is selling this shit as an NFT, it's thoughtlessly shot in the ugly, flat digital of a YouTube video without any interest in compensating or complimenting the look; it seems like he threw it all together in an afternoon. About as literal minded as it's possible to be, it's about him embracing his death, so he embraces a dead version of himself: get it?
