I also remember fondly this review by @mattzollerseitz of HBO's documentary "Six by Sondheim," which I rewatched tonight. (I forgot it has Jarvis Cocker singing "I'm Still Here," from "Follies," directed by Todd Haynes):

Jesse wrote that "Having long taken for granted that he is the greatest composer-lyricist the United States has produced, we can perhaps now notice that he is also an artist to place in the line of America’s foundational 20th-century playwrights."

This review of the 10-minute "All Too Well" has that great thing where the artist makes moves and the critic responds with moves of her own. Game meet game @taylorswift13 and @lindsayzoladz

I'm imagining watching Far From Home and telling him that Spider-Man is sad because his friend died and when he asks who Iron Man is, having to read him a Wikipedia summary

When I came to the NYT in 2015 and told my bosses I had an idea for a story about Britney Spears's conservatorship, I never imagined I'd hit publish on the story announcing its end 6 years later.
