  1. A person can be a jerk, an asshole, or a bully and not sexually assault someone (and vice-versa), so I'm not going to grab a pitchfork for that particular witch-hunt.

     

    I'm conflicted because the Devin I'm familiar with (starting with The Canon and from there Birth.Movies.Death.) was sometimes a jerk/asshole/bully whom I often disagreed with, but also a smart, insightful writer on cinema who frequently espoused pro-feminist, pro-LGBT, anti-racist causes (all of which will be tainted now, but that's how it goes). So learning about his past and his transgressions is total whiplash for me, to say the least...

     

    That being said, it seems Devin has owned up, and the victim - no question the protagonist here - I'm sure lives with a pain and scars I'll never understand, but at the very least seems to have come to an "amicable" (not sure if there's even a good word for it) conclusion with those involved, and seems ready to move on. I'll do the same.

     

    That being said, I'm also 100% on-board with an Amy-led Canon if she's up for it, but totally understand if not. To end on a positive note, check out Amy's Skillset podcast. It's fantastic.

    Well said. I've done things in my life that I'm not proud of (nothing on the level of what Devin has been accused of) and I've made an effort to be a better person. I've been a bully and have said terrible misogynistic things but then I gained insight and I like to think I'm a much better person today than I was back then, but I'm still working on it. Even so, I'm also a coward because I've never apologized for those awful things that I said and did, I think about them frequently and I feel terrible about it but I can't bring myself to apologize because talking about it makes it feel more real to me somehow, and I don't want those things to be real because I'm ashamed. So instead I just live with this guilt and try to do my best going forward. I imagine there are a lot of people out there who feel terrible for the things they've done and just want to find some sort of redemption. Do they deserve redemption? How long before we're willing to accept them as a person again? Maybe their victims are the only ones who get to make that judgement.

  2. I love this movie, for the editing and score that create a dreamlike tone, its world building subtleties, and its art design (my god, the art design). Listening to them criticize it helped me develop a better understanding of what I enjoy about it. Great movie
