Monthly Art #34

This is a monthly “newsletter”, containing a list of what I enjoyed the most last month. Whether it was a full length movie, short film, music album, book or even a painting.

What I am watching

  • Maniac (2018)

Another brilliant tv mini-series, produced by Netflix, where in the near future AI is trying to cure schizophrenic people by messing with their dreams. Sort of the Inception (2010), but with more diverse scenes.

I like how Cary Joji Fukunaga experiments with camera.

Hands off to the Dan Romer for the musical accompaniment - Maniac (Music from the Netflix Limited Series) by Dan Romer.

The problem I am currently facing is where I am struggling to make a choice because there are too many options. For example, what cup to buy - green or blue or red. But some options won’t matter that much in 10 years or even 1 year.
