What Is Up with Tom Cruise and Why Did His COVID Regulation Tirade Seem Fake?

Can you handle the truth?

For the week on the No Film School Podcast: the uncanny, performative nature of Tom Cruise as evidenced by his controversial on-set rant about breaking COVID regulations. Also, how the acclaimed second season finale of 'The Mandalorian' circumvented the perils of fan service. In Tech News, RED offers new firmware that enables autofocus for the Komodo. And for Ask No Film School, how to light dark spaces well and understand the concept of “contrast” writ large. Enjoy and Happy Holidays!

"What is up with Tom Cruise ....".
I could perhaps take your opinions slightly seriously if you did NOT employ that eternally aggravating Millennial speech habit of making virtually every sentence a question by raising the pitch of your voices on the last two or three syllables.

As it is, you just sound like two self-opinionated whiners, which is a shame because the premise that the whole incident was deliberately constructed to make a point is a valid possibility.
