For a long, long time, I have been meaning to watch all of Quentin Tarantino’s movies. Being stuck at home, I figured now is the perfect time!

Beneath Us

Wow. Not many movies leave me speechless. But wow. What a take on our society today. If you’ve ever seen Blackkklansman, you know how powerful that ending is.
