Writer Ethan Warren on Using Media to Combat Despair
Ethan Warren, film critic and editor for the online film journal Bright Wall/Dark Room, discusses his 2018 article "I Can Whistle With That: What the Stories of 2018 Show Us About Responding to Despair." This concept of despair was appropriate for 2018, he says, but may have since evolved into feelings of formless anger and longing. We take a look at what this means for current and upcoming film and television. Warren also discusses his upcoming book "The Cinema of Paul Thomas Anderson: American Apocrypha."
