    ★★★★

    4/5

    It's common knowledge that I have a surfeit of empathy...a well so deep & of such excess that I often find myself emotionally weighed down by other people's mental & physical ailments. I've never needed any help to view the landscape through another's eyes.  It's just something I instinctively manifest & visualize on my own, where I feel a secondhand burden each time I catch a glimpse of a stranger's wearied visage, each time I detect a heavy energy emanating from a…

    ★★★★

    Equal parts heartbreaking & infuriating, this is a must-see film that chillingly depicts the cold-blooded injustices inflicted against Black Americans at the hands of police officers.

    Joker

    ★½

    I am flabbergasted that Joker is the movie that's been the focus of such intense, and seemingly endless, discourse over the past x number of months. that movie? really? REALLY. It's so blah & infuriatingly mediocre that I've already forgotten it & I *just* finished it. why can't we argue over something more fun & interesting next time? There was just nothing here worthy of discussion. It's not complex. It's not smart. It's not insightful. It wasn't even able to keep my attention…
