Deep Astronomy and the Romantic Sciences (2022)

I have no idea what to make of this film. And considering that this is the latest film to come from the fertile mind of performance artist and Indie director Cory McAbee, that’s a good thing.  He’s been making weird and innovative films and music videos for years now, not to mention several albums of […]

Curiously, that seemed to […]
