Fit for stardom: How Adam Driver went from US Marine to Hollywood heartthrob
With Oscar and Tony nominations and three new films, the much sought-after actor has now hit superstar statusFew actors could be said to have dominated a year as much as Adam Driver. The 36-year-old began 2019 with a best supporting actor Oscar nomination for BlacKkKlansman and will end it as the star of three of the year’s most talked-about movies – The Report, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and Marriage Story.In the months between, he has won rave reviews for his performance in Burn This on Broadway, earning a Tony nomination (he missed out to Bryan Cranston), and been the focus of a series of adoring profiles. An article in the New Yorker alluding to Girls, the TV show that made Driver’s name, branded him the “Original Man”. Continue reading...

Street scenes: George Georgiou’s images of spectators at US parades
The British photographer’s new book picturing onlookers at events across the US in 2016 sheds an unexpected light on the fractured nature of contemporary American lifeWhen the American photographer William Klein shot the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade in New York in the 1950s, he evoked the collective energy of the event in the blurred shapes of inflatables floating above the crowds and closeups of the faces of people watching from the sidewalk. In these images, all is blur and movement, an impressionistic glimpse of a parade that drew thousands of onlookers from the outer boroughs and beyond.More than 60 years later, in 2016, the year of Donald Trump’s election, British photographer George Georgiou travelled across a very different United States, his itinerary dictated by parades, both national and local. He too photographed the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade, but also many lesser-known annual gatherings such as the Mermaid parade in Coney Island, the Cranberry festival parade in Warrens, Wisconsin, and Marion County Country Ham Days Pigasus parade in Lebanon, Kentucky. From the off, his plan was not to capture the spectacle of the parades themselves but rather the more intimate theatre of the people lining the streets. “I set out with no big agenda,” he says, “but I knew the images would somehow speak volumes about contemporary America.” That they do, in ways both expected and surprising.

What doesn’t bore us to death can make us wiser
The Institute for Fiscal Studies’ report on the manifestos may be dull but that doesn’t mean it’s not importantWhat sort of response do the words “Institute for Fiscal Studies” evoke in you? Do you think: “Ooh, interesting! I wonder what those guys have got to say!”? If so, I reckon you’re unusual. My reaction is closer to Homer Simpson’s when The Boring World of Niels Bohr comes on TV. I become almost frightened at the prospect of the forthcoming guilt-infused stultification.The name is remarkably unremarkable. Never have two nouns and an adjective run each other so close in a competition to be least interesting. It’s hard to think of any replacement for “Institute”, “Fiscal” or “Studies” that wouldn’t slightly jazz up the organisation’s image. I’d give honourable mention to strong contenders such as “Management”, “Chartered”, “Committee” and “Actuarial”, but I really don’t think they could make it sound any more dull. The most interesting word in its name is “for”. Continue reading...

Driven to the edge: life on the Christmas parcel delivery run
The festive shopping spree is in full swing, with Britain’s 35,000 couriers and delivery drivers at the sharp end, often working long hours with no breaks, low pay and few employee rightsPatrick Wilson’s* heavy eyelids drop momentarily as he parks on a steep terraced street on the suburban edges of north Bristol. He raises a fist to cover a deep, primal yawn that makes his whole body shudder with exhaustion. He has been on the go since 7.30am, when he filled every bit of free space in his battered VW people carrier with packages and bags from the likes of Amazon, M&S and Next. He hasn’t had time to take a break or go to the toilet and it’s now nearly 3pm.“I picked up 220 parcels in the morning,” he says, examining the chunky GPS device that records and dictates his every move. “I’ve done 77 but I’ve got 143 left. That’s a lot.” Continue reading...

Shush... and enjoy the music: how listening bars have hit the right note
After slow food and mindfulness, the latest trend is to attend an event with high-end sound systemsThe lights are low, the music is on, and an east London bar that is filled to capacity on a midweek evening has customers sitting in groups, but not speaking. Some have their eyes closed, others fiddle with their hair. Everyone is bathed in sound: rich, velvety jazz played out by Tokyo-based producer Chee Shimizu, on a sound system built and customised to the highest specifications.The mantra tonight is inspired by the culture of the listening bars that proliferated in Japan after the second world war: “Talk less, listen more.” Continue reading...
