25 Must-See Movies For the Fall

Hey there reader, been to the movies lately? If the box office reports are any indication, I’m guessing not — and who can blame you?

“’30 Rock’ Was a Writers’ Show”: Judah Friedlander on Frank Rossitano, ‘American Splendor,’ and the ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ Prequel

It frankly struck me as a little odd that the makers of Ping Pong Summer were sending out Judah Friedlander — the eccentric standup and co-star of 30 Rock, American Splendor, and many more fine films and television shows — to promote the movie, since one of my few real complaints about the sweet ‘80s nostalgia comedy is that there’s not enough of him in it.

Somehow, at the end of a day of internet immersion, every piece of information begins to seem — how can I possibly phrase this originally? — a reflektion of a reflektion of a reflektion. Today’s links communicate with one another across a dangerous terrain of pop cultural obsession (e.g. the weird, literal feeding of excessive Orange Is the New Black fandom) and antagonism (two good-humored attacks on Don Rickles’ wrinkles in one day!). So sit forward and feast your screen-wearied eyes on these bad boys (links). … Read More
