MaryAnn’s quick take: Cold War propaganda that is weirdly apolitical. Sunny, breezy homoeroticism that is surely unintentional. What a hoot Top Gun is! Mostly not in a good way, but its impact on pop culture cannot be denied. Read the review…

MaryAnn watches classic movies she’s never seen before, and examines them from a right-now perspective.
