Cut the Crap

Every week, Noel Murray’s Cut the Crap column recommends a single film or show to stream and provides a pocket education on one director, subgenre, movement, or moment in pop culture history. From evil doll movies to alternate-reality stories to Game of Thrones pre-history, the extensive Cut the Crap archives will teach you new things about culture’s past while cutting through the mountain of new releases to find one relevant thing that’s worth watching.
