Gone Girl Is the Ultimate Truther Movie — In the week after Gone Girl opened at the top of the box office with a robust $37 million, Naomi Wolf, the author of The Beauty Myth and onetime political advisor most famous for questioning Al Gore's alpha-maleness, posted a series of, to say the least, questionable conspiratorial rantings on Facebook.

Never Can Say Goodbye: Writers on Their Unshakable Love for New York — Never Can Say Goodbye has 6 ratings and 1 review. From the editor of the celebrated anthology Goodbye to All That: Writers on Loving and Leaving New York...

How Did Kramer vs. Kramer Make So Much Money? -- Vulture — Pop quiz: What was the highest-grossing film of 1979? Remember, this is several years after Jaws (the highest-grossing film of 1975), Rocky (highest-grossing of '76) and Star Wars (highest-grossing '77) had, according to the common wisdom, doomed us all forever to a cinematic junk-food diet of robot sharks, alien spaceships, and unending sequels.

Free Yourselves From the Shackles of Spoilers! -- Vulture — Spoil everything. Give away all the endings and, while you're at it, reveal all the beginnings and middles, too. As an audience, we've become far too obsessed with spoilers: flagging them, evading them, burying them far from human eyes like nuclear waste in Yucca Mountain. We argue spoiler etiquette.

What Comes After a Comeback? The Stillback -- Vulture — If you are a fan of the McConaissance - and, really, how could you not be? - you may have spent this year feeling a little deprived.

The Age of the Streaming TV Auteur — the streaming-tv gold rush There's a memorable story in Peter Biskind's Down and Dirty Pictures, a great history of the 1990s indie-film boom, in which an upstart production company, eager to establish its bona fides, promises an absurd amount of money and unheard-of creative control to an in-demand filmmaker with a suddenly hot property to sell.

New York Magazine — Michael Cera is too good to be true. He gets this reaction a lot. He gets it onscreen, as when producer Judd Apatow watched his audition tape for the new comedy Superbad and thought, This guy is off-the-charts funny.

Why Seth Rogen Is More Serious Than Woody Allen -- Vulture — Adulthood is dead, which is great news to get right before the weekend because it means you can cancel your errands and tedious chores and go on a bender, or perhaps just stay home and reread Harry Potter.

New York Magazine — He owns eleven pairs of sneakers, hasn't worn anything but jeans in a year, and won't shut up about the latest Death Cab for Cutie CD. But he is no kid. He is among the ascendant breed of grown-up who has redefined adulthood as we once knew it and killed off the generation gap.

Why Can’t Anybody Write a Utopian Novel Anymore? — You can learn a lot about a society by the Utopia it envisions, and right now our Utopia is a reality show on Fox. Specifically, Utopia, a show in which, among others, a patriot, a pastor, an ex-con, a hillbilly, a raw vegan, a glass blower, and a guy from Salt Lake City are thrust together in the wild to build a perfect society from scratch.
