This is probably bad form for an author to say, but I watch a lot of movies.
I’ve watched more this year than usual. With the theaters closed, I figured it was a unique opportunity for me to actually be up on new releases. Pursuant to that end, I have seen 33 movies released this year so far, and tried to gather storytelling lessons from them, the bad as well as the good. Netflix’s The Old Guard, mercifully, is one of the good.
