THIS MONTH’S SHARPEST LINES “I TOLD HIM I HAD WEAK ARMS BUT A STRONG DISPOSITION. I DON’T KNOW WHAT I MEANT BY THAT, BUT HE TOOK ME UP ON THE OFFER.”—Issa (Issa Rae), agreeing to help a friend move, on Insecure“YOU WERE USING SOPHIA’S CATCHPHRASES AS DOROTHY, WHICH, I DIDN’T READ THE WHOLE BIBLE, BUT I DON’T THINK YOU’RE ALLOWED TO DO THAT.”—Ross Mathews, critiquing Shea Couleé’s Golden Girls-inspired performance, on RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars“I DON’T KNOW IF YOU’VE WATCHED US IN THE LAST 10 YEARS—WE DON’T MAKE GOOD DECISIONS.”—Jersey Shore star Vinny, deciding to live with his exes, on Double Shot at Love“My whole family is embarrassed by me.

editor's note

A Time for Heroes WE HERE ON PLANET EARTH HAVE TAKEN A few knocks of late. Every day, we mainline outrages via the devious little devices that dominate our lives. On bad mornings, one may be tempted to greet the rising of the sun in the manner of the acid-tongued, bleak-hearted Dorothy Parker, who answered every chime and ring by mordantly proclaiming: What fresh hell is this? Resorting to sarcasm and a defensive crouch is a diverting option in these harrowing times. However amusing that may be, it is a lesser choice. When mired in the gloomy trough, why be Dorothy P. when Elie Wiesel, Rosa Parks, and Mahatma Gandhi, among others, point to another path? If our current trials teach us anything, it’s that courage is not an abstraction for storybook…

the must list

№ 1 GHOST OF TSUSHIMA GAMES IT’S A GOOD TIME TO BE A GAME maker. Hollywood’s creative-industrial complex has been seriously disrupted, reducing the summer blockbuster season to a nonevent. Meanwhile, sheltering in place has juiced gaming sales—they hit a record-breaking $10.86 billion in March, according to Reuters. At a time when theaters are still a point of stress for movie lovers, the makers of Ghost of Tsushima (out July 17)—an upcoming release for the PlayStation 4—promise not just a game, but “a movie-like samurai experience” from home. An even better word might be cinematic. Inspired by the work of legendary Japanese director Akira Kurosawa, among others, Jason Connell says he and fellow creative director Nate Fox “had the tools and the technology to make it feel as if you were looking at…

thanks for the memories

LAUGH RIOT Carl Reiner 1922 – 2020 THERE WAS ALWAYS KINDNESS COMING THROUGH HIS affect. Even playing Alan Brady [on The Dick Van Dyke Show], he seemed like a friendly person. He had this adaptability and this willingness to keep working with new people. He was obviously revered, but he didn’t seem professorial. Sometimes people do comedy for 20 years, and then for the rest of their life, they just talk about what comedy should be. But he seemed like he was as game to learn about new comics and to find new bits to do with the 2000 Year Old Man franchise when he was almost 80 as he was when he was in his 30s. He was also a really big fan of a lot of people and would watch late-night…

utopia

AN EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW OF YOUR NEXT OBSESSIONS EDITED BY → SARAH RODMAN @SARAHARODMAN ASHLEIGH LATHROP & SASHA LANE THERE MAY NOT BE ANY IN-PERSON Comic-Con this summer, but Amazon Studios’ upcoming drama Utopia (based on the 2013 British series of the same name) could help to fill the void. At the center of the story is a fictional comic book called Utopia, the long-awaited sequel to the popular Dystopia. Ian (Dan Byrd), Becky (Ashleigh LaThrop), Samantha (Jessica Rothe), and Wilson Wilson (Desmin Borges) are all nerds who bonded online by analyzing the first book, discovering hidden meanings within its pages. When the follow-up is unearthed, they decide to convene at a convention to check it out—and soon find themselves pursued by violent assassins attempting to stop anyone from reading the story. To survive against…

i’m thinking of ending things

JESSE PLEMONS & JESSIE BUCKLEY CHARLIE KAUFMAN ALWAYS TAKES his viewer on a ride, but I’m Thinking of Ending Things—his first live-action film in more than a decade—raises his obsession with subjective experience to bracing new levels. “I don’t set out to do a mindf---,” the Oscar-winning filmmaker says. “I’m not setting out to do something that ‘tops’ some sort of brainteaser I might have done before. But there’s no question that I’m trying to build on the stuff that I’ve already done.” Indeed, fans of the Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind scribe and Synecdoche, New York director should pick up traces of his past work here. Ending Things begins as a sort of moody couple’s road trip, in which Jake (Jesse Plemons) and his girlfriend (Jessie Buckley) drive out to…
