Black Panther Black Panther is more than just a movie—it is a cultural phenomenon. The film bolsters an incredibly talented and predominantly black cast that breathes new life into the superhero genre. Its setting in the fictional African nation of Wakanda wondrously blends together Afrofuturism and science fiction in a way that forces viewers to...

The Favourite is a Carnal, Comical Survival of the Fittest

Beneath layers of starched pleats and prim petticoats, the trio of well-stationed women who animate the ornate corridors of director Yorgos Lanthimos’ latest have claws. But this is no mere cat fight: the ladies of Queen Anne’s England are obliged to stay sharp in the scheming context that Lanthimos constructs, a well-bred past wherein the...

Three Months of Feeling One Step Behind

When I was 18, I started learning French. Three years and many French exams, essays, and presentations later, I packed up my bags to move to Lyon for the semester. I was hoping that, finally, immersion would provide me with the key to the elusive bilingual fluency I had been working so hard to achieve....

Branching Out: Georgetown’s Campaign Against Public Transport

I first heard the legend of the Georgetown Metro from a sullen medical student on a university transport shuttle. We were caught in traffic on our way to Dupont Station and she blamed the Georgetown neighborhood’s elitism for our peril. I’ve since heard the same story from fellow Georgetown students, longtime D.C. residents, and cynical...

Champions League Reactions: Matchday 6

So the group stages are in the books, and I really can’t tell if there’s anybody who actually wants to win this competition. Yes, some big clubs that stumbled had already won their group, but not all of them did, and even some that managed to pull it out in the end were on the...

Avengers: Endgame https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hA6hldpSTF8 Dajour: Hello Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner)! Hello Ant-man (Paul Rudd)! It truly looks like Thanos (Josh Brolin) is out here living his best life now, frolicking in a field of flowers.

Mitski and the Lonely

I am standing in some random Henle apartment I’ve never been to before at 11:47 PM on a Saturday. It is cramped and sweaty but covered in attempts to make the place feel like home. A scattering of posters and six-pack remnants and fairy lights blanket the walls, the floor is tacky with dried Natty....
