On Thursdays, we often present a "Thursday Rethink," which encourages you to rethink a film, director, actor, or aspect of cinema culture. In these articles, we briefly set our proposition against a prevailing or established public or critical opinion, an individual assessment, or even our own judgments and perceptions. We then offer you three reasons to rethink the film, actor, or director, or three intriguing points to consider about it. What's more important than convincing you is having you engage with the films or cinematic components in a new way.

We also want to hear back from you. These aren't always essays or in-depth formation re-evaluations (although some are). But they are always invitations to consider a different point of view.
