These are the pop culture items I consumed this weekend. Without further ado:
Beyond the Lights: I loved this. I went in with low expectations and I just totally fell in love with it. It’s not a perfect movie by any means, but the love story is absolutely convincing and felt fresh. Both Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Nate Parker are excellent. I was totally captivated by this one. Love.
Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief by Lawrence Wright: I finished this excellent book this weekend, and then I promptly had a bunch of nightmares about Scientology. It’s exhaustively researched, well-written, and wholly engrossing. I can’t wait for the HBO documentary. If you have any interest in learning about Scientology from a source other than the church, this is the book to start with.
