It will come as a complete surprise that I am super pumped about The End of the Tour. I’ve yet to see the movie (it has a delayed release in Austin) but have read some pretty stellar writing about the movie, so I thought I’d collect it. I strongly disagree with some of the opinions presented in these links, but they all have their place.
