Is it just me or is the world on fire?

Stumbled upon the review Why ‘Joker’ Is About All of Us and I find it speaks to me. In a few short paragraphs, the author has captured the soul of the issue, expanded it to envelop our current reality, and explained it in such a manner that she has given it life and made me perk up and pay attention…because I understand what she is trying to convey and she does so in such a manner that the words take on an essence of their own, filling in the empty spaces within the reality around us, becoming what we are living. Sometimes words can be touched, felt…they can wrap around your soul in an intricate blanket. I think I may need to put this movie on my list of Needful Things, maybe?
