    The story of how that racist guy who says “I’m not racist, I have a black friend” met his black friend.

  • West Side Story

    West Side Story


    My good friend Scott Renshaw likes to say, from time to time, that multiple opposing things can be true all at the same time. Here are three such opposing things.

    First, the allegations regarding Ansel Elgort in the last couple years are, putting it lightly, very gross. Second, Ansel Elgort is a fairly vacuous, charisma-free actor. Third, West Side Story, in which Elgort stars as one half of a tragically doomed romance, is my favorite film of the year.
