Twitter Capsule: Takes self-conscious risks, aesthetically and politically; not nimble or careful enough in either area to pull them off.

VOR:   Really more of a 4/2 split. There are major risks and boons here in casting, perspective, topic, and collaboration. It also feels unsteady and exploitative.
