    I've actively avoided engaging with so much of the media around George Floyd's death because I find it exhausting and cyclical in a way I can't handle. There's nothing I could read that would give me hope that we won't be doing this again a year from now, there's nothing I could write or watch that wouldn't just feel so familiar and kick in the sense of hopelessness and cynicism that comes around every few months when the world needs…

    It’s hard to account for recency bias in saying something this definite, and surely someone will want to start a useless argument or hold resentment against the movie because they disagree, but I think this is one of my favorite movies I have ever seen. It’s been a while since I felt that way with something new. But my expectations were high going in and I still thought so 30 minutes in. Then an hour in. Then 2 hours in.…
