    Copying Is Not Theft

    ★★★

    "Copying is not theft.
    Stealing a thing leaves one less left
    Copying it makes one thing more; that’s what copying’s for.
    Copying is not theft.
    If I copy yours, you have it too
    One for me and one for you
    That’s what copies can do
    If I steal your bicycle, you have to take the bus
    But if I just copy it there’s one for each of us!
    Making more of a thing, that is what we call “copying”

  • Parasite

    Parasite

    ★★★★★

    Everything that can be said about Parasite has already been said in exhaustive detail ten times over, and the few people just now trickling towards it will find a dearth of human opinions, analysis, and overwhelming praise to sift through, making it impossible to have anything new to add to discussion that their fellow man hasn't already expressed in a myriad of ways. I myself normally wouldn't have much I could feasibly add, given how I've already delivered two reviews…

    Rent

    ★★

    Out of the many, many Broadway shows and musicals that have achieved significant acclaim, cultural relevance, and longstanding appeal, Rent is probably a musical that'll get a mention or two, it's true longevity is somewhat hard to fully judge considering it is a mere 26 years old (I'm not equating how many minutes that is, oh god no) when the juggernauts like The Sound of Music, West Side Story, or My Fair Lady have had nearly 65 years to leave…

    Funeral Parade of Roses

    ★★★★★

    The Japanese New Wave was never a coherent or truly mutual collective of filmmakers and artists, but rather similar-minded individuals that rejected the traditions of early 20th-century Japanese cinema (as in the period pieces of the Togukawa era and the government-controlled contemporary pieces that tended to not fully reflect what was going on in the streets of Japan) in favor of challenging taboos and documenting national societal change and unrest, breaking the rules of cinema while questioning and criticizing the…

    Serial Experiments Lain

    ★★★★★

    (NOTE: THIS IS A REVIEW OF THE ENTIRE SERIES EPISODE-BY-EPISODE. AS SUCH, SPOILERS ARE PRESENT ALL-AROUND. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED).

    Few series have had their legacy defined by mystique and complete obliqueness like Serial Experiment Lain, delving into complex themes like the nature of reality, identity, and communication just as the internet’s interconnected stream of information began taking the form it takes today. Forming a trifecta of late 90’s anime mindfucks alongside Neon Genesis Evangelion and Revolutionary Girl Utena, a…

  • What Is a Woman?

    What Is a Woman?

    Womanhood has largely been considered a flexible and indefinite term throughout the course of history, as the core understanding and nature of women as thinking, capable beings has largely evolved in psychological studies and realistic environments from seeing women as passive, weak individualistic figures meant to be subservient to men, to instead the (mostly) equal individual capable of their own destiny and able to hold independent or commanding roles in any modern-day setting. The roots of why, however, women are…
