Best thing you'll see all week: Shimmer Lake


I wouldn’t have watched this without your recommendation either, @tomchick. Many thanks for your awesome “Best Thing” columns!

The way that Chris woke up Andy in the car. “AWwwk!”


Also: that little girl!


Finally watched this on my iPad on the bus ride back into town this morning (as in, across midnight) thanks to Netflix’s handy dandy new mobile download feature. I really enjoyed it. The sense of humor is great but in no way overshadows the thriller plotting or reveals (so many comedies play things much more broadly) and I just could not get enough of Benjamin Walker as Zeke. I definitely didn’t make the wake-up connection either but it’s clearly there in retrospect now that I read about it.
