People come to movie theaters to be alone together. They use the Internet in order to socialize and interact while being apart. That’s the crisis of film culture in a nutshell: it’s attempting to celebrate one medium using another with opposite properties. But, of course, film culture is chock full of crises and paradoxes—and always has been. Cinema is a very mutable and adaptable medium; as a result, it’s perpetually in crisis.

Rock the artist credit on a Supercuts ad that looks like it was made via Instagram filters.
EDIT: Wait, I’m on Supercuts’ website because that’s a thing you do on a rainy Sunday afternoon (the ad worked!) and I guess Jake Miller is the guy sitting in the chair. How long have chain hair salons been advertising like this? This musician you haven’t heard of gets his shitty haircut at Supercuts! Get yours here too!
