Guest: A.O. Scott
Actor Samuel L. Jackson suggested New York Times film critic A.O. SCOTT should get a new job, after Scott wrote an unflattering review of the 2012 movie The Avengers. In Scott’s new book, Better Living Through Criticism: How to Think About Art, Pleasure, Beauty, and Truth, he talks about blowback from his critiques and about how critical thinking informs almost every aspect of artistic creation and interpersonal life. He’ll join Marty to discuss the book and how he has weathered years on the job.
