Tropes in Entertainment Media: “Bury Your Gays”

Representation is a wonderful thing. It allows young people to see portrayals of minorities and marginalized groups in a positive manner, which not only affects how others see them, but how they see themselves, too.

You Shouldn’t Watch ‘You Should Have Left’

“Somebody from here, Hans Eagle… he said an ant doesn’t know what a cathedral is or a power plant or a volcano. It’s the same with that house.

    Best movies and series for understanding racial injustice

Best movies and series for understanding racial injustice

Last week I touched on some of the best resources for understanding racial injustice in books and documentaries. But movies and TV shows can be just as eye-opening as their non-fiction counterparts, offering both factual and historical context through a Black perspective.

‘The Politician’ polling low with 2nd season that flounders

In the first three or four episodes of Ryan Murphy’s “The Politician” season one, I was in love.

‘Shirley’ explores all sides of the tortured artist

Biopics have always existed in a strange limbo of quality when it comes to big-budget or ensemble films. While they have indeed created career-defining performances and been ambitious in the scope of defining a figure’s legacy, they run the risk of simply repeating a familiar narrative of legacy rather than using its unique world as a malleable stage.  Josephine Decker’s recent feature “Shirley,” however, does everything in its power to
