Whiplash. My boyfriend made me watch it. I didn’t even know what the effing movie was about. I almost missed it. The movie of the century and I almost missed it. (Slaps self in the forehead but not too hard). But Whiplash isn’t the movie of the century for conventional reasons of film analysis. It’s the movie of the century because in 2016 people just don’t give a f*ck about art.
F*ck, f*ck, f*ck, f*ck, f*ck. The new word on the street. (I’m such a lady that I can’t even spell the word out without blushing…lol). But as I told you guys in a previous post, one of my new obsessions is Survivor’s Remorse. If you can’t handle a few…well, a million f*cks, then you can’t handle this show.
So… this is going to sound totally crazy to you but there is a different Director for each episode of your fave TV show. I know what you’re going to say: But the episodes stream so seamlessly, never changing in the tone or look! I know. Crazy, right? How and why do they do it? Well, it may not make much sense to you but here it is.
I don’t give a sh*t… just bring on Season 2. Talk about dynamic programming. I don’t give many props to many things because I don’t believe in glorifying mediocrity. But this sh*t was awesome. Way to go FX. Way to go Creator Ryan Murphy (like he can ever do wrong). Way to go writers, directors, cast and crew of American Crime Story: The People vs OJ Simpson. You won. (I’m literally clapping right now).
