So I saw Agora today.

This contains a whole lot of Sam being angry. Also, spoilers. )

In short, Agora is a great movie about the religious insanity that dominated the fall of the western half of the Roman Empire. However, it is a piss-poor narrative on the life of an incredible woman who deserves better.

In entirely other news: [livejournal.com profile] zeitheist , I'm so sorry I haven't replied to your email yet. Moving in to our house has just been insane, and I've also been fairly busy stomping around and being angry at people. My reply is forthcoming, I promise. ♥

1. I'm afraid I can't be bothered to discuss the religious themes in this movie here, especially because they're not half as problematic as its depiction of Hypatia, but feel free to bring it up.
