I published a new one As part of Piece at The dropout this evening. Sweet tooth premiered on Netflix last week and it seemed like a good idea to take a look at the streaming series.
Sweet tooth is a post-apocalyptic fairy tale, the story of a little boy who wanders into the wilderness for an adventure. However, it is also a fairy tale that understands the purpose of such stories, as these fantastic narratives allow audiences to deal with complex fears and anxieties. But what does Sweet tooth is so interesting that it reflects fatherly fears as well as childish ones. It is a story about the fears of a parent who watches their child try to navigate a chaotic and hostile world, knowing that there is only so much they can do to protect them. It’s a beautiful, moving approach.
