    We Need to Talk About Cosby

    I think this miniseries does a fantastic job of helping people understand Cosby's career and the context in which people see him, but I think the place where it struggled was near the end trying to stick the landing on the issue of his legacy. How are we supposed to think about a man like that? It's an endless conundrum that probably has no answer, but it's a fascinating question I think could've been explored further. That being said, this is a solid documentary about Cosby's life and the crimes he was accused of in recent years.

    Out if the hundreds of WW2 films out there, very few can come close to this level of explosive authenticity. Filmed on the streets of Rome only six months after Rome was liberated, this film’s most notable quality is its stark realism. The events of the film, the fear and anxiety the characters face and the dire stakes of their actions have such a heightened significance when you realize these actors actually lived through the Nazi occupation just prior to production. It’s a stunning piece of history and, on top of that, a fantastic film.

    Barry Jenkins creates an epic story through intimate moments that encapsulate a man's entire life. It works on so many levels and is one of those rare moments where such a special film actually received the acclaim it deserves.

    I'm glad y'all are getting your quips in on this film by looking at it purely as a statement on the modern state of women, or the political issues that face feminism or whatever nonsense you want to apply to this story.

    However, I think this is actually a very serious film that deals with the pain of reproduction, similar in theme to Annihilation. Not simply human reproduction, but the reproduction of pain. The way blame is passed between individuals…
