I love this psycho show! Season 4 just “dropped” (as the kids say) and I didn’t think it could get any crazier, but between the solitary confinement felt room (it’s hard to explain) and brainwashing dolls (stay with me!) I feel like I just od’ed on adderall!
Let me back up and explain the basic plot: A group of self-centred, airheaded millennials, led by Dory Sief (Alia Shawkat) investigate the disappearance of a former acquaintance. And things go horrrrrrrrribly awry.
Yes you will feel anxious, exasperated and dumbfounded, but you’ll also be laughing really really hard!
This show was made for me. I watched the first ep and was IN LOVE. It’s like a cross between the autobiographical documentaries of Ross McElwee (swoon), Nathan Fielder’s business comedy docu-reality series (yes it is that hard to explain) Nathan For You and Timothy “Speed” Levitch’sphilosophical sightseeing tours of New York in The Cruise .
Of course Google puts it more succinctly: “Documentary filmmaker John Wilson embarks on an odyssey of self-discovery and cultural observation by covertly filming the lives of fellow New Yorkers while trying to share advice.”
Get your mind out of the gutter – the C-Word here is “Crazy”! Hosts Lena Dunham and Alissa Bennett (my new obsession) spend each ep reviewing the life and media coverage of interesting, difficult women who were misunderstood and dismissed by society as “crazy”.
Dunham and Bennett’s discussions about each subject are peppered with funny anecdotes from their personal experiences so it really feels like you’re hanging out and gossiping with your besties over a few wines.
I watched this documentary for the first time last year and it blew me away.
A beautiful, intimate portrait of the Indigenous Australian actor Jack Charles, it follows Jack over seven years as he juggles life as a working actor with periods of drug addiction, homelessness and cat-burglary.
Jack’s irrepressible spirit, humour and passion for life is truly remarkable, and makes this such a unique, moving film.
This documentary series is based on Michelle McNamara’s true crime book of the same name.
It follows the history of the Golden State Killer in California, as well as McNamara’s obsession with the then-unsolved case. McNamara passed away in 2016 and her book was published posthumously in 2018, several months before the case was finally solved.
What sets this series apart is that it’s simultaneously a gripping true crime story, a portrait of a writer and a study of obsession, and it all makes for fascinating viewing.
This movie is a classic! Chuck Noland battles the weather, loneliness, and a weird obsession with a volleyball after been stranded on an island. Cast Away definitely makes you wonder how long you would survive? Also, what is the FedEx packaging made of?
Based on the beloved historical romance novels by Julia Quinn, Bridgerton is a must for any romantic. Set during the height of regency England, we follow the adventures of the Bridgerton family as eldest daughter, Daphne, is presented for her first season on the marriage mart, where she meets Simon Bassett, the Duke of Hastings and they set about to fool the Ton that they are in love.
The show delightfully blends elements from both regency and modern times, spectacular costume and set design and gratuitous sex scenes that rivals Game of Thrones, that even the most cynical will enjoy this romantic romp.
We Are Who We Are lets us into the lives of a group of teenage friends living on a US military base in Italy. This coming-of-age drama series particularly concentrates on two teenagers as they go on a journey of self-discovery and experiment with their gender expression and their sexuality. The show focuses little on the dialogue, and instead relies heavily on the detailed aesthetics to express who these characters are and what they are going through.
