    Selah and the Spades

    ★★★½

    Selah being unable to feel romantic feelings towards anyone... wish that were me.

    This is a film chock full of promise. I'm really glad it's being turned into a TV show, because there was so much to dig into here that there just wasn't time for.

    ★★

    Between this and Watchmen, I now know way more about Oklahoma! than I ever wanted or expected to.

    I just want to start off by saying that I "get" this movie. It's very thought-provoking, and I understand the story it was telling and what it was trying to do. It just didn't work for me at all. I don't believe audiences should be handed everything on a silver platter, but sometimes purposeful inscrutability can just become downright frustrating, really taking…
