The Geekwave

Chatting with the crew of the U of U's geeky website and podcast.

Trumped, haunted and kidnapped
A Ghost Story (NEXT) **** The idea that a person in a sheet with two eyeholes could represent something transcendently mournful about humanity seems ridiculous, but that's exactly what writer/director David Lowery pulls off in this breathtaking work.
