The arts have collectively provided Harvard students with an outlet for creative self-expression, allowing them to explore issues of mental health in safe spaces and with freedom of expression. One campus artist who has utilized art to generate discussion about mental health, Bex H. Kwan ’14, sees the two as inseparable: “What is art not on mental health issues?”
Breaking Bad is one of the most critically and commercially successful shows on cable television, but its success is not what makes the show unique amidst competing shows such as "Game of Thrones" and "Mad Men." What distinguishes Vince Gilligan's near-finished work from its rivals is its deep commitment to detail and foreshadowing.

“We few, we happy few, we band of brothers.” So goes the famous St. Crispin’s Day speech, delivered by King Henry V at the climax of the eponymous Shakespeare play. In a departure from more popular Shakespeare comedies or dramas, director Matthew G.

Presented by the Hyperion Shakespeare Company, “Henry V” will open at the Agassiz Theatre on May 3.

While “Oblivion” succeeds artistically and features a strong cast, its writing occasionally borders on being overly sentimental and fails to take the film’s unique premise towards a strong conclusion. The film touches briefly on themes such as individuality and free will, but brushes by them on the way to visually satisfying scenes.
