In the beginning, there were many domains, with servers and servants to their kingdoms. All visitors to the different towns lived under the same rules. This was eons of cycles ago, of course. Life was slow. Before devices became smart and the Vista was new. Back then, everything was different – we didn’t have him.
I have started writing this piece as a review of the new animated “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” film, however it is as well a critique of other superhero movies. I have a huge problem with most of them and I honestly don’t remember the last time I left a cinema wanting more. This one, however, exceeded all my expectations for a genre that I have pretty much written off already. For me it wasn’t only a great superhero movie, most of all it was the best Spider-Man movie I could have hoped for. I honestly loved everything about it.
I thought I knew where I stood with swimming pools - ideally outside of them, on firm land - but over the course of my graduation project I’ve found myself thrown in the deep end of a cultural waterworld, bathing in symbolism and drifting around lazy rivers of ambiguity.
