"I like "The Purge." It’s the best kind of genre film to my mind. Rather than make a film about Trayvon Martin, you can make it a sci-fi horror film. And you make it about those ideas without preaching it at all. A smart person will see the movie and go, "This is class war.""
You do not run The Atlantic's blog. The Atlantic's Tumblr is run by a legion of Frost Giants eternally at war with Daleks. When we get breaks from our universe-spanding conflict, we like to post great content from The Atlantic.

So I interviewed Spaz Williams (Jurassic Park, The Abyss, T2, The Mask) and John Maloof (Finding Vivian Maier) and now I’m just sitting around writing for a while before my round table with John Turturro. I’m just so glad to actually have a break after being surrounded by dozens of press folk and random people I don’t know.
