    A collection of reviews that I think everyone should read. Some of them are great analysis, some are a cry for help, some are both and all the things.

    Well researched and well intentioned but makes the same mistakes that are still common today in films made by white people about race relations, namely that every white character is either racist or savior.

    Brian Eno: Another Green World

    look, any time you're exposed to Eno you will walk away smarter and inspired - he is an aphorism machine, the most quotable artist (person?) maybe ever - a genius at 100 things including how to describe art in ways that actually make sense. (I've attended lectures by him.)

    [There are SPOILERS in the 5th paragraph but that’s OK because you should NOT see this film.]

    Here’s what happened in 1970:

    The FBI manipulated facts and created a completely false narrative in order to fuck with Jean Seberg because she said nice things about black people.

    Here’s what happened in 2020:

    A white Hollywood writer couple with legacy pedigree and an Icelandic via Australian director manipulated facts and created a completely false narrative in order to fuck with Jean…
