What You Missed in November ’14

In November, I wrote a bit about Interstellar, weighed in on the Bill Cosby scandal, and made some wild connections between politics and cinema. Here are your links:

Final Tidbit:

Just a helpful reminder. I know December is a busy month for folks, but I wanted to remind you that I’ll be publishing lots of original, year-end content on the blog. There will be the return of my annual “love/hate” list, an opportunity to check out some great, under-the-radar films you may have missed, as well as my year-end essay on the film that best encapsulated the politics of 2014. Hope you stick around and check them out.

    • Thanks, Enrique! I’ve been doing this for a couple months, but I heard from a few people that they were overlooking the wrap-up thanks to its pedestrian title: “{September/October] ’14 Links”. Glad I have righted the ship.
