    The Spy Who Dumped Me

    ★★★★

    I’m starting to think I’m broken. Truth be told, *I’ve* always believed my sense of humor to be pretty fucking on point. I’m witty. I’m able to recognize & enjoy subtle sarcasm and revel in the art of the irreverent. I am obviously not a comedian, rather someone who is casually goofy with an infectious, easy laugh….

    what is there to say? an incredible movie about an unforgivable epoch of American history. a wonderful depiction of an atrocious injustice against this single man, against an entire race of people, against generations of systemic suppression of a significant segment of our society, against instinct, against nature... Slavery, in my opinion, is antithetical to our inherent moral fiber. It is IRREDEEMABLE. We will never truly move beyond the horrors that we, white Americans, deliberately chose to inflict upon both…
