Breaking Bad (2008-2013)

It shows how “the impossible”—like the notion that an innocent, deferential science teacher could transform into an evil, mass-murdering, money-laundering meth kingpin within a couple of years—becomes “possible.” And, even more strikingly, the dichotomy between lead character Walter White and his sidekick Jesse Pinkman is brilliant. […]

Nomadland (2021)

It is the season of “Oscar bait” films. Some consider it a pejorative term. But it can be a compliment. To me, it means that the producers were willing to take a risk on a film that wasn’t necessarily made to entertain. Perhaps they are more interested in creating candid, meaningful, reflective art than merely […]
