Shake Up The Canon! Post-Trump Films

I continue getting political with my scholarship this week as I discuss and destroy The Canon.   What is “The Canon”?

December 1941 in Casablanca: Post-Trump Films

Disclaimer: this is a highly political post. Eye Protein has always been politically committed and is more explicitly politically engaged than other areas of the site. “It’s December 1941 in Casablanca right now, what time is it in New York?” The world is changing, I can feel it in the air… No, I am not […]
