"The word cinematic gets thrown around a lot in relation to ambitious TV. You hear that a particular show is very cinematic, or that a certain scene was cinematic, or that the direction was cinematic. But what does that word mean, really?"

  • Above: Courtesy of the New York Times, a statue of Lenin in Ukraine has been transformed into Darth Vader. Says its artist, “I wanted to make a symbol of American pop culture which appears to be more durable than the Soviet ideal.”
I didn’t know what to expect of the short “Review” and was pleasantly surprised that it did not end as I thought it might. It’s much like a New Yorker short story, you know that kind, the story that you get to the last line and look to see if it continues on the next page (only, really, knowing it doesn’t, (A) because you’ve read this kind of non-story story before and (B) because it has a little black dot at the end of the last sentence) and so it doesn’t and you go: huh.
