  • 9 to 5 Review Part 1

    Content Warning — sexual assault, domestic violence, Ben Shapiro

    If you're anything like me, you were probably extremely ambivalent about the Amber Heard-Johnny Depp defamation lawsuit while it was going on. Everything I learned about that was entirely against my will, because celebrity drama feels like perhaps the lowest form of entertainment.
