Game of Thrones - Iron Throne

HBO

The best movie culture writing from around the internet-o-sphere.

There will be a quiz later. Just leave a tab open for us, will ya?

Daenerys Goes to Washington: The Modern Politics of Game of Thrones” — Jedediah Purdy at The Daily Beast juxtaposes characteristics and themes to find Westeros D.C. The first six paragraphs are unanchored and flighty, but the rest of the piece builds in some funny and uncomfortable directions. Nihilism reigns.

Aliens in a Strange World” — Tim Grierson at To Be Cont’d profiles the films of Jonathan Glazer — including the disarming Under the Skin — to find a potential thematic tie among the varied (and short) list.

Want better film criticism? Stop feeding the trolls” — Sam Fragoso at The Week suggests taking a deep breath, taking some time to read dynamic critiques, and taking the simplest contrarianism out of the equation.

The Death of Sarah Jones: Safety Concerns Raised Over Midnight Rider Crew’s Previous Film in Georgia” — Speaking of rewarding longform, this thorough and considerable piece from Jen Yamato at Deadline is well worth the time it takes to digest it all. Fair warning: the subject matter doesn’t go down without a lump in your throat.
