that one guillermo del toro movie

This is one of the best reviews I have read. I can't wait to see the three films, I haven't seen, and see Pan's Labyrinth again. The other thing, about the other Del Toro, I think that sometime, Benicio Del Toro, should be cast with Brad Pitt at some point, because to me, they look so much like brothers. I have skipped some of the struggles that people made to resist Facism, and struggles of other sorts. Lately I have been doing my homework. The Shape of Water is going to be my next watch.

Technically his latest video essay was about Daria and why she resonates with millennials.

this one from just before the del Toro essay, on Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog and how it's accidentally an incel show, is also decent, but is also, as it admits, secondary to Sarah Z's examination.

It’s weird that long form art/social criticism has moved to this talking head reaction videos like this. Do they expect any response to also be a video? Exhausting.

That Dora video covers a lot of ground and is mostly about intra generational strife. Apart from the usual reservation of such categorizations I found it a stark reminder of just how intensely angry kids are.
