BUT THE SHADOW

“There are things that have to be said to advance the plot and establish the characters, and those things get said whether you want to say them or not. Don’t fight it.” – eXistenZ (Cronenberg. 1999) Life as a game: There is only one ending, and you only get one quarter, so enjoy it while it […]
