The internet is full of beautiful things, but it is also hard to find high-quality stuff. Many of us spend almost an hour trying to find a beautiful movie to watch or a nice book to read. But you don’t need to worry about that issue anymore! Since I love bookmarking and sharing my bookmarks, this newsletter will help you have a wonderful week!
Here is the good stuff for this week!

Movie of the Week: Le Dernier Loup
Le Dernier Loup is a Mongolian film that showcases the beauty of nature. And this Mongolian movie features a Chinese student who is sent to Inner Mongolia to teach shepherds and instead learns about the wolf population, which is under threat by a government apparatchik.
In the movie, there is a scene where a pack of wolves hunts the local tribe on horses for ten minutes. To this day, I do not know how this scene was filmed — scenes as captivating as this aren’t even in documentaries.
This movie acts as a showcase of the ugly human nature and the royalty-like nature of wolves.
