Remember the Classics: Bergman’s ‘Persona’ is Cinematic Poetics at its Finest

When it comes to Ingmar Bergman’s 1966 film Persona I have absolutely no idea where to begin, and that’s kind of the beauty of it.

Why ‘Blockers’ is Everything Wrong With Movies

Blockers is the perfect summation of everything I find wrong with movies today.

Where does one even begin to discuss this special? I pretty much like to keep the peace so I'm going to be walking on more eggshells than that time your teacher dropped all the those eggs off a ladder.
