This week I actually have my act together well enough to post links—hooray!
- Emily Nussbaum’s epic pan of The Network, Aaron Sorkin’s new TV show, in this week’s New Yorker is a thing of beauty—terrible, terrible beauty.
- Apparently the threat of lawsuits has become so intense and potentially ruinous that most art experts now decline to pass judgment on whether works are genuine or not. The New York Times‘s exploration of the phenomenon is fascinating and sad—and seemingly good news for aspiring forgers.
- I have no idea whether it will be any good—and, to my shame, I’ve never actually read Anna Karenina—but the preview for director Joe Wright’s forthcoming adaptation certainly looks breathtakingly gorgeous.
- Even the cheesy music doesn’t make Matt Harding’s latest dancing-with-people-around-the-world video any less affecting and beautiful.
