    ★★★★½

    Centuries have past, and the almighty of ancient times no longer sits in his tenth sphere. We no longer sit terrified in church, staring at the frescoes of devils. The witch no longer flies away on her broom over the rooftops. But isn't superstition still rampant among us?

    An incredibly compelling and fascinating documentary about the USWNT's fight for equal pay. It's an incredibly disappointing situation that all of these wonderful women find themselves in. Here are a…

    I feel like I wrote a pretty solid review the last time I watched, covering the most crucial parts of the movie. I'm just rambling here, but these are a couple notes for things I noticed on this run through that I would like to be able to look back on. I'm bullshitting on 90% of this, alas:

    - The juxtaposition of Calvero's past versus the present carry the themes of the film. His bedroom walls are covered in posters…
