Critics reviews

We witness complex worlds, opposing universes, personal limits and political concerns. There is the care for our own and the rejection of the other. There is an exclusive joy for us, and a struggle put on the shoulders of others. There is a fence, a border, a solid frontier between us and them. It might have been made seven years ago, but what we see is as true as seven years ago, and makes for an eye-opening watch.
