Computer-generated effects have truly become the standard in contemporary cinema. At a time when a vast majority of what we see is infinitely malleable, effects/tricks that were once considered definitive have bled into the background. Is it affecting or just irritating when movies create worlds of monochrome?
It is a delicate subject for this week: The Filter. & The Light.

If all the power in the world resides in the eyes, then hold on dear listeners. 'Cause we're gonna unplug you and yank back the veil that's been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.
No one gets away clean. Um, Drugs. And Birds. And Bullets.
