Re: Art That You Might Like

This is a thing I really like, that I haven't gotten to see yet: Cycloid . Neat as hell (though I have the usual complaints about the way it was filmed). Quite dystopian bullet ballet, if I may coin a phrase. (Zooming the camera around 1. makes me queasy and 2. disconnects me from the art, forcing ...

Really awful though to read about how much was covered up, It's more than a coverup, it's a disgusting frame job on actual victims.

the bed doesn't add much to the experience of watching at someone's lived-in room either.
