Movie Quote of the Month

Jnne-July 2021:

"Other places feel weirdly reanimated. The 'Twilight Zone' quality that many observed in Times Square at the height of the pandemic has shifted into something more like--well, a 'Twilight Zone' episode in which everyone, aside from on B-actor, forgets that a pandemic just killed tens of thousands of people and shut down the city for a year. ("Am I the only one who remembers?' William Shatner would shout, in close-up.)"

--Adam Gopnik in "Sitting with Strangers" in the June 14, 2021 issue of The New Yorker
