Richard Brody reviews the new film:
"As a work of art, ‘Dear White People’ counteracts and counterbalances its tendencies in order to melt its aesthetic identity into something forcedly charming and likable. Its lack of serious political confrontation … leaves its sympathetic viewers thinking that their sympathy is enough, that the mere existence of the film, and their enthusiasm for it, is a mark of social progress."

Drops in the River - Fleet Foxes
You hesitate so my memory fade, I’ll hold to the first one
I wouldn’t turn to another you say, on the long night we’ve made
Let it go
Youth - Daughter
And if you’re still breathing, you’re the lucky ones.
'Cause most of us are heaving through corrupted lungs.
Setting fire to our insides for fun
Collecting names of the lovers that went wrong
The lovers that went wrong.
Fluorescent Half Dome
The Jewel Casket by John William Godward, 1900.
