Join me as I count down my favorite movies of 2021 halfway through the year!
Ever since I watched Bo Burnham: Inside, I’ve been inspired to go and create for myself. In this video essay, I explore the inspiration.
This movie is so much more than a revenge thriller, even if it has those elements. It’s a desperate, yet confident and competent plea to both listen and speak up.
I’m glad I found Bo Burnham when I did. It helped me work through some things which he was also working through at the same time and I’m a happier person for it. Just like Bo hoped.
Eighth Grade is an excellently done coming-of-age film that will probably go under the radar, but shouldn’t. The realism that it portrays isn’t present in a lot of movies that are released these days. It is a breath of fresh air that lets the audience – no matter age, race, or gender – relate to and learn from a 13 year-old girl who has wisdom way beyond her years, whether or not she realizes it.
