watching: solo: a star wars story

The prequel: On the one hand, a narrative frame within which storytelling that nominally coheres with its source material is usually flattened, trivialized, and robbed of any sense of freedom or possibility. A sure-fire antidote to the sense of expansiveness or openness that once attended a big story.

On the other hand, a frame which typically renders efforts at revelation and expansion totally incoherent.

But: Donald Glover does a heck of a good Lando.
