Emerson Annotation for Monday

Ok- Let's read some Emerson over the weekend.  What to look for:

Check out this great writing from a review of A Walk Among the Tombstones by Manohla Dargis:
Nasty, brutal and unforgiving, “A Walk Among the Tombstones” is one of those rare contemporary cinematic offerings: intelligent pulp. It was written and directed by Scott Frank, a script writer whose credits include “Get Shorty” and “Minority Report,” which means that he’s spent time transposing the likes of Elmore Leonard and Philip K. Dick to the screen. Mr. Frank is working with uglier, less pleasurable material here: a 1992 novel by Lawrence Block featuring his continuing character Matthew Scudder. It’s a story of good and evil in which men are as tough as nails and women little more than meat. The nail image is a metaphor; the meat less so.
