I'm writing a term paper about "This Is America" right now - this video will definitely be incorporated. Really great content!

As was said before, I think the work is closer to magical realism than to surrealism. Good video though.

Found you through your Queen video and now I can’t stop binging your videos. Excellent video essays. My fiancé really loved your Wes Anderson video. I also really enjoyed your Christopher Nolan video. Subscribed for more!

I wish I could deeply understand the meaning of the Atlanta's episode "Teddy", where Darius goes to the house of this guy to buy a piano and shit got out of control

Just came up w a more fitting title for this video; Examples of current day social engineering in music & in television. (With monotone commentary by "self appointed" intellectual) ... Do u guys remember that old computer game "Lemmings"?

Where did you hear that the music video was shot on film? I can't find any other source for that.

This was one of the few excellent video essays I've seen since the year started. The commentary you deliver is very much informing and engaging, along with the great editing you make me want more from you. Seriously, keep up the astonishing work man.
