This is not to say that Wright is untalented. It is quite an image.
The Woman in the Window is based on a best-selling, pseudonymous novel by the notorious fabulist Daniel Mallory, whose history of lies, delusions, and borderline plagiaristic writing practices was outlined in a phenomenal New Yorker profile by Ian Parker —an investigative piece that re like a thriller.

The second Jane is played by Jennifer Jason Leigh, maybe the greatest American actress of her generation, although a case for that title could also be made for Moore. After directing the actor to an Oscar as Winston Churchill in Darkest HourWright lets Oldman sleepwalk skillfully through a stock sinister-asshole performance bereft of hidden depths.

Peering into multiple apartments with his telescope, he could just as easily be seen as a proto-channel-surfer, and the miniature dramas he takes en route to the discovery that his neighbor is a wife killer are suggestive of so many of his own sublimated feelings and desires: for family, for companionship, for sex. It vibrates with the possibility that there are secrets out there waiting to be discovered.
You made it out alive. The Bucks star carried the franchise to its first title in 50 years with one of the most jaw-dropping performances in NBA Finals history.
Not only did he deliver on his championship promise, he delivered on everything he has said on his long, winding journey to the peak of his powers—and the sport. Plus, JJ closes the show with some wager talk and a few picks from Jeff Money. Think you know how a sport becomes part of the Olympics?
