Crying Into the Breadbox 2019

A commissioned essay for Sad People in Modern Homes in Popular Films (2019).

The long-awaited sequel to the now canonical Evil People in Modern Homes in Popular Films (2013), continues an elegant and witty taxonomy of modern architecture’s presence and influence as found in recent cinema. One of four commissioned writers, I lamented on the Kitchen Space as an escalator of tragedy in the films The Joy Luck Club (1993), A Single Man (2009), and Io Sono l'Amore (2009).
