  • Lightyear



    The root of Buzz Lightyear’s character is his disillusionment. That’s the toy. The toy of Buzz Lightyear is dropped out of place and time, an action movie hero that’s become a toy, still devoted to his ultimate meta mission, in the toy’s original fiction.

    Born in Flames


    Lizzie Borden approaches a more complete axis of discrimination and oppression than the regular Hollywood Feminist films would do, and in doing so, creates an intersectional portrait of possible and achievable uprising. The film itself is a kind of uprising, wherein it’s characters, faced with varied adversities, are put on course to examine how their quests for change might impact each other, and how a more complete systemic dismantling is in order. It is not just essential today or this…
