Luke Atkins

Film, Music, and Television Critic

About

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, critic, artist, and student. You can find me in Cambridge, Massachusetts—where I am studying government & history at Harvard University. Furthermore, I am an aspiring political pundit, with ancillary plans to be a professional film critic. I play soccer religiously. And I have a vast array of other interests: everything from media to history to art history to graphic design to video games to geography to theoretical astrophysics to even the most outlandish topics—like quantum mechanics, anarcho-syndicalism, nuclear fusion energy, Maglev trains, Noam Chomsky, arcology, and even ufology.

Still, there are very few things I’m sure of in life. All I really know is that I love the arts. I love experiencing them, I love pondering them, I love discussing them, and I love sharing such profound experiences with people like you. So, I try to cover both high-quality current works and “classics” alike. I try to be brief, so you’ll know that I’m onto something important when you see a big post. Maybe I’ll refine my format when I enter the professional realm as an arts critic. Maybe not. Just remember that I write my reviews alone—without any editors—while juggling Harvard classes and jobs. So, just don’t expect perfection yet! But I hope that this website provides a way for us to share and even bond over our passions, 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.
