Government censorship

In my opinion, Government censorship is extremely egregious in every sense, and the fact that my own state’s legislature seems so on board with the idea is very troubling. Ben Baker has introduced a bill to attempt to bar young people from getting access to “age inappropriate” or sexually explicit content, people rightfully became upset.  No government in any place in this country, or on … Continue reading Government censorship

It’s brilliant, it’s emotional, it’s grounded and my God it’s well acted. Adam Driver, Scarlett Johansson, Ray Liotta, and Laura Dern are all excellent in this film.
