  • WeWork: or The Making and Breaking of a $47 Billion Unicorn

    WeWork: or The Making and Breaking of a $47 Billion Unicorn

    ★★½

    Talked about this on the Sub-Beacon at length, but, just as a documentary, this is kind of a mess? Insofar as I wasn't entirely sure who were employees and who were, like, WeWork tenants, at least at first. And I don't think it does a very good job of breaking down all the ways in which WeWork was flirting with fraud. Anyway, full episode here.

  • Wrath of Man

    Wrath of Man

    ★★★★

    "Yes, it’s a bit of a narrative mess, and sure, Ritchie blinks at the end rather than staring fully into the abyss. But it’s a delightfully nasty, mean-spirited piece of work that is sure to split audiences expecting something a bit more traditionally Ritchie-esque." Full review here.

    Did Cliff do it?

    Murder his wife, I mean. There's an intentional ambiguity to the question, an open-endedness. After all, we never see him pull the trigger on that speargun, even if we see his finger curled around it in violation of gun safety etiquette. Kurt Russell's character seems to think he did, as do others on the set of THE GREEN HORNET. Rick, on the other hand, brushes that aside as nonsense. An unfair pejorative slapped on a war…

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    The show is fine, but I'm sorry: the effort it makes to recast Wanda Maximoff as a victim rather than the perpetrator of a horrible crime is really off-putting! Monica's whole "they'll never know what you sacrificed for them" ... lady, these people have all been horribly victimized by her for weeks! What the fuck! Why on Earth would they give a single SHIT about her having to give up her fake kids and her fake husband? I feel like I'm taking crazy pills here.
