I’d like to float a fresh theory about Edgar Allan Poe's 1839 short story “William Wilson,” which I think casts light on Jordan Peele's new movie Us, too.
Holmes may not be a genius inventor, but she's certainly a genius. She used to depict herself as a Palo Alto Marie Curie. Now she looks more like an IRL Lady Macbeth, all bloody hands, ruthless ambition, and fake baritone.
