Thom Yorke & Paul Thomas Anderson’s ‘Anima’: A review
Thom Yorke has one of the best faces. I’ve kinda known this since discovering Radiohead as a teenager (eugh, I hate that. Yes, in 2008 I discovered one of the most acclaimed contemporary artists, as though it weren’t a cool English teacher who recommended them to me.)
David Yarovesky’s ‘Brightburn’: A Review
There’s a quote which I no longer no where I heard it: ‘The only difference between horror and comedy is the lighting.
