The Weekly Filet brings you the five best links of the week, every Friday. Making sense of the big issues of our time (with a healthy dose of serendipity and nerdiness). Curated by journalist David Bauer.

Varieties of Disturbance

The New Yorker

If you are – like myself – one of the people who are waiting for season 3 of «Homeland», you’ve most likely been impressed by Claire Danes portrayal of bipolar CIA agent Carrie Mathison in the first two seasons. If you haven’t seen Homeland yet, well, you should. The New Yorker has a fine profile of the actress, going after the question: Where do Claire Danes’s volcanic performances come from? It’s a good read, especially for the weekend.

From Weekly Filet #128, in August 2014.
