JP Sebastian

We’ll hand over the mic to JP for this…

“JP stands for ‘John-Paul’ by the way, a wandering economics postgrad, about as much an economist as I am a past pope. But I feel like its informed my tendency for cinemanalysis. I enjoy nitpicking characters’ micro motivations, macro dynamics, blablabla. Probably my all-time favourite handles this best, Cuarón’s masterpiece ‘Children of Men’. Yes, yes, I can be exhausting like this because I refuse to treat cultural products as merely inert or escapism. We must mine movies for clues of what they say about us, what they wish us to say about ourselves & how teasing that out with meaningful critique can help us make a better world!”
