 c/o: TaylorSwiftVEVO Ever since Taylor Swift entered the music industry, there has been a running joke in the media about her being a serial dater, emotional and, of course, if a boy breaks up with her, she will write a song about it, dammit.

Opening in limited release Nov. 14, Butter on the Latch and Thou Wast Mild & Lovely are the two debut fiction features of performance artist Josephine Decker. Though the transition between media is not always smooth, the results of Decker’s foray into film are often breathtaking and always provoking. The twin films are not explicitly linked by story; they resemble variations on a theme. The first, Butter on the Latch, is a free-form improvisation, untethered by a pre-determined narrative or scripted dialogue, while Thou Wast Mild...
