Patton Oswalt Dropped A Stunningly Voluminous Tweet On Gun Control After The Buffalo Mass Shooting

Patton Oswalt’s well-known for his predictions in the nerd-culture realm, but it’s almost impossible to avoid the serious issues out there, too, mostly because they keep hitting the U.S. in the face, at places that should be safe. Sadly, not even grocery stores are immune from mass shootings, and over the weekend, Buffalo, New York was ground central for what appeared to be a racially-motivated attack by a gun-wielding, manifesto-writing suspect who took 10 lives. Oswalt isn’t afraid to hop into the political realm at times, including the gun-control subject (he’s done so on a few occasions over the years), but his Sunday tweet packed a lot of punch into less than 280 characters. It’s a lot.

9th Annual Chicago Critics Film Festival Preview: Premieres of Cha Cha Real Smooth and I Love My Dad, Cooper Raiff, Patton Oswalt and more set to attend

Robert Kojder looks ahead to the Chicago Critics Film Festival…. While Flickering Myth is predominately a UK-based website (although our American readership may have eclipsed that base now), I would be remiss not to draw attention to another year of the Chicago Critics Film Festival. For full disclosure, yes, I am a member of the CFCA but am not involved with putting the festival together. I attend as a lover of movies just like you or anyone else would. Time after time again, I’m also blown away at what festival organizers (CFCA Board Members Brian Tallerico, Erik Childress, Steve Prokopy, Peter Sobczynski, Collin Souter, and something of a new sensation in the film criticism world, Robert Daniels) consistently put together. The festival has produced my favorite movie of the year (Eighth Grade and The Power of the Dog being a few recent examples) multiple times.
