“A MASTERPIECE” reads the poster of Kenneth Lonergan’s Manchester by the Sea in a font larger than the title. It’s a font so large that the blur of motion doesn’t render it illegible—it’s in, I think, every subway station along New York’s L line, which means I’m confronted at least a few times on most days with “A…

In an interview with Thrillist in November, Evan Rachel Wood remarked that the first season of Westworld was “an amazing prequel and a good setup for the actual show.” And, in a sense, that’s been sort of clear the whole time—from the get-go, the series posed the question: what would happen if robots living in a world…
