    A few months ago, I wrote my Common App (college application) essay about how Chantal Akerman's work changed my life. But first, here's some incoherent stream of conscious thoughts about my mental health (because that's always fun to read).

    I haven't been in a good mental space recently. I don't know how one can define a mental space since we can only relatively compare our present self to our past self. But relatively, it hasn't been great.

    Dune: Part Two

    ★★★½

    Kind of devastated that I didn’t love this. Even though I was fairly mixed on the first film, everything about Part Two had me excited. And yet…

    Visually and sonically, this is astonishing. One of the most beautifully crafted blockbusters maybe ever? But the film kind of gets lost in itself. What starts as a focused, interesting dissection of political power and the religious response to oppression, loses a lot of its thematic depth in favor of rushed, bland storytelling. The…
