0 genre bending

debo is recovering and laid up on the couch watching tv, awaiting her surgery next week. i encourage her to watch black panther and she does. 

she calls me the next morning and says she really liked it. then she asks: didn't you find the narrator a little distracting? 

it was kind of like watching a national geographic special, she says, with, like, how he would say things like "and then he furrowed his brow," and "the women move together to tighten the circle." i enjoyed the movie but really found it hard to follow at times. did you feel that way too? i mean, what kind of new genre is this?

plot twist: she'd watched the entire movie with the descriptions for the visually impaired turned on. 

she's watching it again tonight.
