    We are just so weird aren't we.

    Society, humanity, and humans on a level of reason makes a lot of sense. The way we have evolved and they systems we have built around us to support this evolution all adds up from a technical standpoint. But when viewed objectively, from far away or up close, it is. Just. So. Weird.

    Was I engaged and entertained the whole time, you bet.

    The Trail of the Chicago 7 is a very "movie" movie and a crowd pleaser but it never really claims to be anything different. With a screenplay that fires on all cylinders and strong performances all around it is definitely the most gripping and engaging film of the year.
