Luke Atkins

Film, Television, and Music Critic


Hi! I’m Luke. The more I know, the more I know how little I know. And in a universe with trillions of galaxies, I’m honored to be here with you now. I am a writer. I am a junior in college—studying government and history at Harvard. I am a political pundit (feel free to check out my new political show). I am a tutor. I am a soccer player, coach, and personal trainer. I am obsessed with geography and history. I am an art snob. I love theoretical physics. And I have a vast array of other interests, from Rocket League to mental health advocacy to extremely obscure topics like Japanese Maglev trains and futuristic, eco-friendly skyscrapers and the theoretical prospect of developing nuclear fusion energy power plants. Pretty weird, right?

Alas, there are very few things I’m sure of in life. I don’t know why we’re here or why I maintain a solipsistic fixation on my arbitrarily constructed reality. I certainly don’t know what I want to “do”—whether I end up as an author, professor, political scientist, politician, full-time film and music critic, etc. What I do know: I love the arts. It wasn’t until my life reached its lows that I saw how crucial they are to me, but now I know. Anyway, I cover both contemporary works and classics. I try to write brief reviews (ranging from one giant paragraph to two or three small ones), so you’ll know that I’m reviewing something special when you see a long post. Also, my music posts can cover anything from albums to songs. Hope that this site provides a nice platform for us to share our interests, ideas, and experiences!

  1. Hi. I just read some of your articles. I’m not sure yet if what you say is accurate since I’ve watched or listened to none of these works, which is why I have an even greater incentive to check them out.


    1. Looks like Nomadland is the heavy favorite right now, but you never know! Could be Mank or possibly a dark horse. Guess we’ll see how things pan out in the next few weeks in terms of media momentum and all.
