 Rated R, babycakes. One day we’ll stop cussin’.

Hey, it’s a Jesus story just 2 weeks before Christmas! The 44th edition of the Next 100 Project tackles themes of terrorism, rebellion, racism, despair, hope…and saviourhood. Alfonso Cuaron’s ultra-realistic flick was unappreciated when it came out, but it has grown in esteem ever since. Order up your Sparkplug Coffee, then slip on your flip flops and drag the mother of the future through a war zone. Oh, and pull my finger.
