It’s a stark contrast to the country’s reality, in which police arrest Russians for speaking out against their corrupt and violent government. The video shows Pussy Riot members dressed in police uniforms dancing happily, while singing lyrics like “Me and the cop,...
 It has been ten months since Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico. Since then, we have seen horror stories come out of the island, as well as stories of true heroism.

Although Puerto Rico is no longer actively in the news, those helping Puerto Rico have not stopped their efforts. While the cable news cycle may be obsessing over the president’s latest tweet, people...

Riverdale ​and ​Stranger Things a​re two of the most popular TV series currently running, and Betty Cooper and Nancy Wheeler are two of the series’ most important characters. After following Betty’s and Nancy’s super sleuth storylines for two seasons now, I have a hunch of my own: the two are essentially the same character fighting the same fight—and together they’re rebranding the modern Final Girl.The Final Girl, a horror trope term coined by author and academic Carol J. Clover, is marked by her perceived moral...

I just finished watching the well-cast and complex first season of Seven Seconds, a Netflix Original that premiered at the end of February. My delight in this show, however, was short-lived, when I learned that the show had already been canceled, and my surprise has expanded now that star Regina King has earned an Emmy nomination. Despite the cancellation, it is still worth your time to check out this series because it is complete as it stands; there are no threads left dangling, because the intention had...
Eighth GradeWritten and directed by Bo BurnhamOut July 13 It’s the last week of eighth grade, and things haven’t quite turned out like Kayla thought they would.

Kayla pantomimes effortlessness on her YouTube channel, where she gives self-help advice, but her tips fall flat IRL. When she’s home with her dad, an equally befuddled divorcé, she snaps at him and...
