More than once while watching Tarsem Singh's new movie Mirror Mirror I thought to myself: That white girl certainly looks suspicious in that hoodie.

I also wondered, more than once, why I was actually sitting in the theatre. (The movie is bad, but not detestable.)

The correct answer is, of course, that Eiko Ishioka designed the costumes (this is her last film: she died earlier this year).

And if you haven't heard about the outrage that is going on in Florida right now, where our children literally are not safe on the streets, please read this at the New York Times.
