The outline of The World’s End by Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg.
The World’s End (2013)
The Wanderer above the Mists (1817-18) | Caspar David Friedrich
The person stands before a daunting, mountainous landscape and deep valleys filled with mist. Although some claim that this man ‘conquers’ the landscape with his position over the misty gorges, he is still dwarfed by the immensity of the wilds before him. He is not called a hero or conqueror in the title, but a wanderer. The mountains are a solid and impenetrable fortress before him. Although he has reached a peak where he can view the landscape around him, there are still even greater elevations, mountains and wildernesses that are unknown to him at his position. The human is present and given importance, but the landscape within the piece is still there to evoke the sublime.

People are questioning the film’s “misogynist” portrayal of Amy, as though she’s - what? A bad role model for teenage girls? But this misses the point. I think the real fruit of Gone Girl is how completely it condemns Nick - useless, shiftless Nick - by turning the performative behaviour that Amy enacts in reaction to her husband into Grand Guignol farce, outlining all of Nick’s broken values in blood-soaked bas relief just by having Amy live up to them.
Because Amy kept going: she followed the logical line of the Cool Girl to its end point, and discovered the no-win scenario that misogynist culture happily builds for women. There’s an inextricable flip side to the Cool Girl branding, and it’s waiting behind the lips of all the men to whom a woman dares present her unchecked agency. To paraphrase Harvey Dent, you either die a Cool Girl or live long enough to see yourself become a cunt.

Eugenia Loli must have a wicked sense of humor because her photo collages crack me up. I can’t quite put my finger on why they’re funny, but maybe it’s the combination of vintage, 1950s imagery with scary, apocalyptic themes. The two very different tones seem to collide in her series of beautifully surreal images. .
