What’s making it worse is the pandemic-induced lockdown, which carries its air of stress and paranoia. Most of us are looking for an escape from the daily grind. An escape that takes us somewhere else, far from the chaotic world we currently reside in, and beyond the bounds of the imagination.

The main question is: Where can we find such an escape? The perfect answer is, in a movie.
