    Hi, looking for some inspiration and connection in movies and tv.

    There is so much out there…it’s like crazy. Any way to sort and share viewings stuff is welcome.

    Stagg and I have been going through Netflix stuff for past year. He did not watch Mad Men, The Sopranos, or Breaking Bad when they first aired so we have watched all of those, me again. (Tony Soprano is the judge…duh!)(Walter White is the judge, duh!)…Jury still out on Don Draper LOL.

    Recent things that were awesome on Netflix have been:

    The OA (Loved). I especially recommend this to Diane if you see this post. I should email you too and recommend this one! The creator and star of this movie is someone I will be loyal to forever. Brit Marling. She has IT!!!! And is on the pulse of contemporary culture. I love her. A true goddess.

    Better Call Saul. There is no way I thought I was gonna like this….it was like when Cheers made a spin off of Frazier. Why THAT character…who cares about Frazier. Little did know it would be so damned good and funny. Same with the Bob Odenkirk spin off from Breaking Bad. I was like, what? Why him? Oh my god…it’s so good!!!

    Feud this is going to be a series of bio pics about famous peoples feuds. This first one is Bette Davis and Jan Crawford and it is killer!

    Citizen Jane opens this week end in theaters. A must see documentary about how Moses tried to kill New York and Jane saved it. Janes Jacobs book The Death and Life of Great American Cities is the pivot.I believe this is a must see film. The archival film footage of NY in the 40s and 50s with life on the street, working class, working poor thriving and having places to live and creating their OWN jobs (thank you very much politicians….you are o help at all) is worth seeing on the big screen. I got lucky to a premier showing and wow what a great film.

    The Get Down, so far fun and lively. Love the archival footage.

    Chefs Table, ridiculous decadence is the end product….but the narrative of these chefs dedication, sacrifice is wonderful….yogi-like. Each episode has some major pay off. My faves were the Patagonia chef Francis Mallman, temple food chef Jeong Kwan, Chicago crazy Dr. Suess chef Grant Achatz and Russian chef Vladimir Mukhin, ramen chef Ivan Orkin. If you don’t have much time…I would just recommend these and see if you like them.

    All VICE all day…it’s basically been my go-to news source for 20 years but now it’s easier to find on HBO and Youtube. Black Market hosted by Omar Michael Williams is stunning and jaw gapping about people making a living all over the world under the table.

    The Dressmaker, I don’t know why this movie didn’t do better either in box office or word of mouth (although it might be catching on) this one is awesome. I don’t even want to talk about it here LOL

    Sense8, awesome! Weird, love it.

    Frankie and Grace so funny I am like a fool laughing out loud in living room

    Amy shimmer The Leather Special

    Dave Chapelle two specials of stand up. Genius.

    Jim Gaffigan

    The Crown

    Peaky Blinders

    Happy Valley

    Black Mirror

    Orange is the New Black

    Freaks and Geeks

    GIRLS. Judd Apatow totally understands contemporary culture. I don’t know how he does it. He is the king. The deadly trio of Jenny Konner, Apatow and Lena Dunham is some of the most heart infused writing. Way more dirty and real than another fave SITC.

    Looking for movie recommendations though…poor movies have been almost left in the dust from so much good tv. And regular channel tv is good too.

    Hey Candy

    If you haven’t already, check out Rectify. It’s on Netflix.
    I could go into a hyper-rant about how great it is, but I’ll
    spare you. Check it out. It is something special indeed.
    Deadwood is my all time favorite tv show, but Rectify is right
    there next to it. I’ve watched it three times in the past 18
    months and it only gets better. The fourth and last season I’ve
    seen only once, and I’m sad to say it was bit of a disappointment
    compared to the rest of it. But anyway, remarkable show.

    I will look at RECTIFY this evening thank you!

    Please feel free to rant away….I enjoy hearing breakdowns of shows and films.

    Watching it three times even over several years is impressive in itself. To watch it so many times within a short period of time is something meaningful to me.

    I’ve watch THE COUNSELOR and NCFOM countless times in the last two years. 10 each? I’ve lost track.
