Review: In ‘Pope Francis: A Man of His Word,’ a Religious Leader Speaks at Length
...the first pope to adopt the name of St. Francis of Assisi. For Mr. Wenders, this is most significant. The film begins with a long, high angle shot of the Italian village of Assisi, done in time-lapse cinematography to convey what the filmmaker considers the timeless nature of the place.Mr. Wenders’s singular focus on Pope Francis is born of sincere admiration, but it also constitutes a canny strategy. This pope is a controversial one, and this portrait plucks him out of the context of debated opinions to let him speak without argument. “The world is mostly deaf,” he says at one point. He continues to describe his approach when traveling the world and meeting its leaders: “Talk little. Listen a lot.” Less welcome are Mr. Wenders’s brief attempts at depicting the life of St. Francis himself. It just feels dumb. And frustrating, especially considering that if Mr. Wenders wanted a classic film model to emulate for evoking St. Francis, he needed look no further than Roberto Rossellini’s splendid 1950 film “The Flowers of St. Francis.”

We Made a Tool So You Can Hear Both Yanny and Laurel - The New York Times
An auditory illusion: this sounds like "laurel" to some people and "yanny" to others. NY Times built a slider so you can make it more like one or the other.

Is Your Script Gender-Balanced? Try This Test - The New York Times
“Highland 2 provides a real-time snapshot of the overall gender balance. The results are sometimes surprising. With her heroine-centered movies, ‘I expected all of my scripts would be over 50 percent” female, Ms. Hodson said, ‘and they weren’t.’”

Taking Visual Journalism Into the Sky With Drones - The New York Times
What are some of the new and interesting tools you are experimenting with for visual storytelling?

I’m constantly experimenting with the latest drones and 360/virtual reality camera systems. Every year, drones get smaller and their cameras get more advanced. In addition to improvements in image quality, I’m particularly interested in using drones for actual reporting — from counting houses that were damaged in a fire, to tracking plant health over time to help identify the impact of drought, to analyzing migration patterns and to identifying where peat fires burn underground.

Tom Wolfe, Pyrotechnic ‘New Journalist’ and Novelist, Dies at 88
Tom Wolfe, an innovative journalist and novelist whose technicolor, wildly punctuated prose brought to life the worlds of California surfers, car customizers, astronauts and Manhattan’s moneyed status-seekers in works like “The Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby,” “The Right Stuff” and “Bonfire of the Vanities,” died on Monday in a Manhattan hospital. He was 88.

Rachel Brosnahan’s Comic Timing - The New York Times
Her comedy doesn’t come from a deep well of insecurity; it comes from a brazen moxie that she cannot explain and never realized had a viable outlet until she stepped onstage.

Are My Friends Really My Friends? - The New York Times
The result, then, can be a glut of old acquaintances that are not as easily forgotten online and which therefore stifle the development of newer, in-person friendships.
