“‘The Painter and the Thief’ Puts Empathy on Canvas”

I think a lot about empathy and how we talk to each other, in person and online*. I think a lot about what it means to see other people, and what it means to care about other people. And I think Benjamin Ree must have the same on his mind, because that’s what his film The Painter and the Thief is all about.

That’s it. That’s the intro. Just go over to Paste Magazine and read my review. This is a really, really special film.


*Maybe especially online, otherwise I don’t think I’d have brought up Twitter in front of the team behind Emma.
