For those of you who have frequently thought that Trump’s America is comparable to the Upside Down — prepare to feel validated by the United States government. Rep. David Cicilline of Rhode Island took the House floor on Thursday to compare the current climate of America to that of the fictional Upside Down, the creepy and demon-infested parallel universe of Netflix’s Stranger Things. “Mr. Speaker, like the main characters in Stranger Things, we are now stuck in the Upside Down,” Cicilline began as he stood beside a...
Kelly Reichardt is a good example of an indie filmmaker who seems to be edging towards wider recognition (at least where film critics are concerned.) Her films such as Wendy & Lucy, Meek’s Cutoff, and Old Joy often receive critical acclaim and are frequently part of the film festival circuit.

It’s a lot worse for some than for others, but it’s a chaotic time in...

The trolls infiltrated the feminism Facebook group I admin and when I caught on and started to ban them, the harassment began.
