Another week, another collection of Weekly Clickables, featuring content from minds across the Internet. This time, we have an essay and a video relevant to the election – one is serious and one is light, so they balance each other – as well as a couple lists.
- First, at Vox, Alissa Wilkinson dove deep into one of the more challenging films to discuss in recent years, Nate Parker’s The Birth of a Nation.
- Next, Danny Elfman composed a horror movie score for Funny or Die to accompany a clip of Donald Trump stalking Hillary Clinton on the debate stage last week, and it’s the best thing we’ve seen or heard in a while.
- The Nerdwriter compiled a video essay about how the expression of ideas can only be as good as how the thoughts are connected, and uses Edgar Wright and his use of transition in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World to illustrate his point.
- Finally, a couple years ago Sundance put together a list of the top 10 movies about hating your job, which we’re including because it feels therapeutic to do so.
That’s it for this week. Check back next Monday for more of the best movie stuff from the rest of the Internet!
