    Uncut Gems

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    Deception is a labyrinth. Once entered, only its creator is able to successfully navigate it. They alone know the correct series of decisions to find the exit. They know because they inevitably made them in its construction and navigation thereafter becomes a meticulous sequence of repetition.

    Lie, truth, lie, lie.

    From the introductory shot, the Heathers first appear more like lawn ornaments than people. Their croquet-primary-colored-personalities sit neatly in a row behind a purposeless white fence. Heather as dictator, Heather and Heather faithfully on either side. As they rise to walk out, they seem to purposefully step on the flowers below. Crushing them in unison beneath their feet.

    These girls know better than to let new growth bloom. They have successfully formed a social clique that allows nobody else to…
