    Where Are You?

    To those who have recently followed my account (or to those who've followed me for a long time and have been wondering where I went):

    I'm still here - the pandemic coupled with the birth of my second child at the beginning of the year eviscerated much of my motivation to engage with movies the same way I used to.

Granted, that traction is not of amicable nature—it is an ugly, reprehensible agency, but an agency nonetheless, and to ignore its influence on not just cinema but the United States of…
