The Morning Read: Defending ‘Speed Racer,’ God Gets Involved with ‘Pulp Fiction’ and The Persistence of Movies

The best movie culture writing from around the internet-o-sphere.

Just leave a tab open for us, will ya?

“Hulk’s Favorite Movies: Speed Racer” – FILM CRIT HULK is to be commended for defending the bizarrely disliked candy-colored gem from The Wachowskis. An excellent piece. You might need this.

“Read an exclusive excerpt from ‘Pulp Fiction: The Complete Story of Quentin Tarantino’s Masterpiece” – Jules undergoes a spiritual change in this chapter from Jason Bailey’s new book.

“Why TV Hasn’t Killed Movies, With Alfonso Cuaron” – I can’t wait for Esquire’s “Why Sculpture Hasn’t Killed Painting,” but joke’s aside, this is a keen conversation with the Gravity director.

“Grace-Infused: Notes on Director Wes Anderson’s Working Relationship With Actor Jason Schwartzman” – Chuck Bowen at Roger Ebert pings off a moment in the pair’s new short film to encapsulate a long-standing collaboration.

“How Friends Decided to Pair Off Monica and Chandler” – Josef Adalian at Vulture gets the scoop from show writer Scott Silveri. Apparently the groundwork was laid very, very early on.
