The Twisted Knots of Power and Control in Phantom Thread
NOTE: This piece contains spoilers for Phantom Thread.   Phantom Thread is a film of such remarkable craft and exquisite execution that I find myself in the extremely rare position of admiring it, even liking it, despite finding its message somewhat deplorable. Like the gowns that are the obsessive life’s work of Daniel Day-Lewis’ Reynolds Woodcock, […]

A Splash of Color: The Quietly Feminist Love Story of Florence
The tender new iOS game Florence is, yes, the sort of game I tend to champion, the sort of art that feels particularly crucial and nourishing in this period of intensified violence, cruelty, and dehumanization. A narrative game that tells the story of how a young woman’s life is changed when she and a musician meet […]
