Architectural Modernism as Evil in the Movies–The Magazine!

“I don’t think that any iteration of modernism was ever intended to convey coldness, though it’s certainly been codified that way in various pop cultural vehicles, Hollywood movies among them. I suppose it’s funny, in the end, that even these happy, vibey California homes can somehow be retrofitted to house vice. And that the filmmakers would deem them appropriate containers for villainy in the first place is something I can’t help but smile at.”
