    Reversing Roe

    "If you don't have control over your own body, what rights do you have?"

    Honestly, how can you not watch this documentary this weekend?

    Oh, what, you think it can't happen here? Have you been watching the news since Friday night? No? Go fuck yourself.

    All I'm saying is that you better order your coat hangers now, because there will be a national shortage of them by next year.

    Ricki Stern and Anne Sundberg brought the stark warning in 2018…

  • The Abortion Diaries

    The Abortion Diaries

    "Thank you for sharing."

    Abortions are good.

    Why is that a controversial statement? Abortions are good. It's a good thing when people have them. Over a million women have abortions every year. If it's so common, why do they feel alone? Why is it a secret? Why is it seen as anything other than a basic medical procedure?

    Now that Texas has effectively banned abortion, and the Roberts Court has stayed silent without bringing the case through its shadow docket,…

  • I Stand Alone

    I Stand Alone

    "It all started in France, land of cheese and traitors."

    Gaspar Noé's debut feature is not a prelude to the nu-metal song of the same name from Godsmack (which has a good riff but little else) but apparently a riff on a theme he explored in his short film Carne. Not having seen that, I went into Seul contre tous – literally "Alone against everyone," presented in English as I Stand Alone – totally blind except for the knowledge of…

    Elon Musk's Crash Course

    "Who's to blame, the driver or the car?"

    Obligatory weird nerds meme.

    The New York Times is back with their documentary series on FX and Hulu – most notable for the buzzy doc Framing Britney Spears – and this time Elon Musk is the titular subject. Plenty of films have been made about Musk, Space-X, and Tesla and the firsts and breakthroughs by him and his industries, so it's refreshing to see a new one that features real reporting from…

  • Frozen II

    Frozen II

    The screen glows white in the theatre tonight
    Not a cellphone to be seen
    A film devoid of imagination
    And it needs to be in quarantine

    My face is scowling like a raging storm inside
    Couldn't make it good, heaven knows they tried

    Don't let them in, don't let them see
    Be the good film Frozen I was to me
    Raw deal, this reel, don't let them know
    Well, now they know

    Don't you go, don't you go
    Can't say…

  • Gemini Man

    Gemini Man

    Now, this is a movie all about how
    Will Smith got cloned by a man of renown.
    And I'd like to take a minute, just sit with me,
    I'll tell you how he became de-aged in a film by Ang Lee.

    In west of some laboratory, born and raised,
    In a test tube was where he spent most of his days.
    Chillin' out, maxin', assassinatin' a fool,
    And all shootin' some people to graduate from school,
    When a couple of…
