[S]eared a black furrow across my soul as a teen that has never healed... it still plagues the dim recesses of my imagination.
For all its grim hopelessness, Threads had a subtextual faith that people would understand all this before it was too late. Full Review
Rating: 5/5 -- It's perfectly crafted, totally human and so completely harrowing you'll think that you'll probably never want to watch it again. Full Review
