Lent: Part 36

The House of Yes (1997) – Maybe I’m oversensitive to the trope of the dysfunctional family with the unstable relative, but it’s just not doing it for me. I’m not asking for new or better representations of mental illness in film (although do that, please, movies), I’m asking more for a break from mentally ill family as a plot device. Yes, a great deal of that is on me to stop seeking out those movies, but if Netflix could improve the recommendation algorithm, that’d be great, too.
