WEIRD BUSH, OR: BUSHWAVE

WEIRD BUSH, OR: BUSHWAVE

Weird Bush.

I have a feeling weird Bush-era stuff is making a come back.

Maybe not for long. But I'm seeing it ripple across culture.

In movies, in art shows, in scholarship.

Some of the artworks that seemed "too soon" or "too weird" or "too much" during the W. Bush era will suddenly seem prophetic, or (for the first time) coherent in 10 years.

This will be the Weird Bush effect.

Bush Wave.

Some of the movies I've been thinking a lot about lately:

Southland Tales (2006)
Jarhead (2005)
Season 4 of "24" (2005)
Cloverfield (2008)

Can you think of any more?
