    It hits me sometimes. When I stop thinking about what I'm doing right now and let my mind adrift, let myself stare towards the distance. The horizons always seem to elicit these thoughts, memories of loss from long ago that still sting beyond the grave I buried them in. Gazing outward I see landscape, but just as much as the subject am I gazing at the aspect of distance itself. Sky meets ground. Meets city, meets trees, meets mountain and…

    The Lone Ranger

    ★★★★★

    A 21st-century blockbuster western, made from all the parts of previous westerns while being distinctly its own thing, made possible due to its casually PG-13 deconstruction of problematic genre tropes and narratives by being viewed through the memories of a Comanche Indian as he beseeches future generations to remember our country's inherently bloody colonialist roots, how companies will inevitably end up corrupt through the greed of man and how that corruption will cajole the government to support their designs while…

    Out of all the things I learned, struggled with, and went through in college, there's a specific moment that changed me the most.

    The Shadow Play

    ★★★★½

    Police procedural solved through non-linear narrative, the present-day cop unable to piece it all together because the pieces themselves have long been scattered. Time is an element often elicited because of how little time people have left before everything changes, rapid development promising new prosperity while covering up the forgotten folks it paves over. The future is a conglomerate one in every possible definition, old identities discarded to grasp onto whatever new one is in vogue and soon everyone forgets…

  • The Worst Person in the World

    The Worst Person in the World

    ★★★★½

    We can't help but feel like the worst person in the world. Not to our friends necessarily, or our families for that matter, or even to the one(s) we share a bed with, but to ourselves. Decisions we made that we can't really call 'self-destructive', that's not quite it, but destroys our lives anyways. Destroys what we've built the last few years of our lives, and with no idea of how we'll survive after. Why do we do this to…
