"In This Together" at Strange Horizons



I have a new column up at Strange Horizons this week!

"In This Together" talks about the opposing (but sometimes complementary) explorations of duality presented by two very different movies set just before an oncoming apocalypse: Pacific Rim, in which only perfectly-communicated teamwork will save the world from giant monsters from another dimension and it will all be okay so long as we trust each other and work hard, and Melancholia, in which everyone in the world is totally screwed, and only two codependent sisters who have never effectively communicated and can't start now are even aware it's coming, and after the wedding reception you sat through in the movie's first half, you're probably fine with the planet exploding.
