Some of the Best Things

It’s fun to write about the things that move you greatly. So, in short order:


Angel Olsen, D'Angelo, Will Chancellor’s A Brave Man Seven Storeys Tall, Frank the movie, Manhattan the TV Show, Citizen: An American Lyric & Olive Kitteridge, and the best nonfiction books of the year.

A note: I thought it was interesting that our “underrated” list mostly consisted of television shows — books were possible, of course, but I also think it speaks to the fact that amazing things are happening in television on a regular basis and film, on the other hand, is falling behind.
