The Incendiary Verve of "The Good Fight" (Leggi l'articolo su The New Yorker)
“The Good Fight,” like “The Good Wife,” its predecessor, is a cockeyed love letter to just this kind of strategic life, as lived by a set of educated, hypercompetent professionals: a liberal élite, if you will.
The Theater is Still the Best Way to See a Movie (Leggi l'articolo su Screen Crush)
Those who argue that the theatrical experience needs to evolve or grow with the times to accommodate changing tastes misunderstand the movie theater’s key appeal: Its ability to take us out of our times and put us into another.
