Movie of the Week: “A Face in the Crowd”

I’m adding a new feature to this site that I’m calling “Movie of the Week.” Why this, and why now? Quite frankly, because I need something to write about. Current events are mostly depressing, and how much more is there to say about David Bowie and spam?

Well, there’s probably plenty more to be said about David Bowie, actually. All in good time.

Movies are generally underrepresented on The Philter relative to their importance in my life. This is partly because I think they are overrepresented in the culture at large. Do a series of elaborate and expensive dreams deserve so much analysis and scrutiny, when there are so many real problems in the world? Probably not; but here we are.
