Last quote by James Poniewozik

In the photo, Mr. Franken's hands are stretched toward Ms. Tweeden's breasts, but he's not looking at her. He's looking into the camera, with a broad smile on his face. His grin is implicating. It says that the joke is between him and you, the viewer, and that Ms. Tweeden is simply the prop. … That dynamic – the performer, the enabling audience and the woman who does not realize she's being objectified – is familiar. Specifically, it reminded me of Mr. Trump's notorious 2005 'Access Hollywood' tape.feedback

James Poniewozik quotes

Jul 20 2017

Dry and offbeat, with an immediate, original voice, this comedy is a back-roads drive through the expansive territory between rags and riches. It's a delight to find 'Atlanta,' an idiosyncratic hangout with a crew whose members, in a genre that lionizes making it big, would be glad to make it medium.feedback

Jul 14 2017 - Great Barrier Reef

But what promises to be an appealing adult relationship sitcom becomes a sour story of self-absorption and infidelity. Think of it as 'How I Cheated on Your Mother.feedback

Jun 12 2017 - Russia

Mr. Stone's view from the left is a break from the usual news media vantages on Russia, either tough-talk centrism or the defenses of Putin enablers-come-lately in the conservative media. But it is embarrassingly generous.feedback

Jun 09 2017

Whether they say so or not, everyone seems aware that prison sieges don't end well. That knowledge invests the season with purpose. More than ever, Orange' is like a speeding vehicle with a wheel missing: It doesn't always steer steadily, you can feel the chassis shimmying and straining, but the velocity is urgent. Catastrophe' has the raw honesty of a mom on her second martini at a play date.feedback

Jun 08 2017

The cowboy term for that would be 'respect,' and 'The Ranch' both gives and earns it.feedback

May 28 2017

Twin Peaks,' returning 27 years after its debut, is no longer brand-new under the sun. It still has the ability to turn your TV into that box – a quietly menacing portal through which something horrifying or wondrous might burst at any moment.feedback

May 17 2017 - Trump Presidency

Mr. Colbert brought a carving knife, and Mr. Fallon brought a butter knife.feedback

May 16 2017

It's the idiosyncratic story of an idiosyncratic Los Angeles family that shows how idiosyncrasy has become a formula itself. But this is a well-executed version, which becomes more than the sum of its quirks.feedback

May 15 2017

If the first season doesn't entirely hang together, it's bracingly risk-taking. At its best, it captures the artistic process in a way that TV rarely does, and it works as a kind of video art itself. But as with some other recent experimental series – 'The Young Pope,' for instance – it's best to realize that going in.feedback

May 12 2017

Watching 'I Love Dick' is like attending an exhibition for which the artist has supplied her own curator's notes. It's an experience as much as a story: arresting, disorienting and provocative. It's also very conscious of explaining to you how and why it arrests, disorients and provokes.feedback

May 03 2017

This is a dark story. That it's not oppressive is a testament to the deft adaptation and, especially, Elisabeth Moss's layered performance.feedback

Apr 28 2017

Apr 28 2017 - Netflix

The device underlines the show's mission: to intrude on your safe space, to demand engagement, to make clear that, yes – whoever you are – 'Dear White People' is talking to you.feedback

Apr 19 2017 - Holocaust

The real draw of the story is the show's delight in telling it. There's no patter like 'Fargo' patter.feedback

Apr 17 2017

There is a debate to be had over whether pregnancy was the right story to leave Hannah with – whether motherhood is too often used on TV as the device through which female characters grow up, the last dragon to slay, the biological bar exam for admission to true womanhood. But, whether or not Hannah should have become a mother, Latching' has a vision, true to her character, about how she would have become a mother.feedback

Apr 16 2017

Like a good millennialist cult, The Leftovers' grasps an outlandish idea with absolute emotional commitment: The performances in this final run are spectacular throughout.feedback

Apr 01 2017

Mar 22 2017

If, like the systems it explores, Shots Fired' is somewhat compromised, it's also a probing investigation into which lives matter in a post-'postracial' America.feedback

Mar 10 2017

Besides a pretty good physical resemblance, Stone kind of carries himself like he imagines himself to be a roguish figure from another time, which Slattery is good at. Roger Stone is basically the melting-snowman version of Roger Sterling.feedback

Mar 05 2017

Feud,' with blunt writing but exquisite performances, recreates that dish, critiques it and eats it with relish.feedback

Jan 09 2017
