‘The Leftovers’ Recap: Reverend Matt Tries to Save the World

14 May 2017 7:02 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Don’t read on unless you’ve seen “It’s a Matt, Matt, Matt, Matt World,” the fifth episode of the third and final season of HBO’s “The Leftovers.”

On March 10, I got an email telling me that episodes of “The Leftovers” had been posted on HBO’s media site. Like any fan of crying, Wu-Tang tattoos, beards and America, I watched the seven episodes HBO made available as soon as I could.

During the last two months, my patience has been tested. My endurance reached its limit more than once. There were moments when I just didn’t know if I could take it any more.

I’m not talking about the trash fire that is much of the national political scene.

‘The Leftovers’ Review: The Most Profoundly Moving Boat Orgy Honoring a 92-Year-Old Lion You’ll Ever See

14 May 2017 6:59 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “The Leftovers” through Season 3, Episode 5, “It’s a Matt, Matt, Matt, Matt World.”]

Immediate Reaction

When Damon Lindelof said “The Leftovers” had “more dongs than ‘Game of Thrones,'” oh boy did he ever mean it. Even before the massive, 11-hour, seaward orgy began, “It’s a Matt, Matt, Matt, Matt World” kicked off with a buck naked French sailor running full speed down the narrow corridors of his ship, his penis bouncing between his legs in slow-motion. Rarely has the male body been celebrated so thoroughly on television, and we applaud the feminist spirit of Lindelof and director Nicole Kassell, who made sure for every bare-breasted woman with only a lion’s tail covering her backside, there was a man whose front-side tail was given the same unflinching attention.

But even more than the equality, we remain impressed — perhaps more so than ever — with how well “The Leftovers” blends absurdity with substance. Among the people in headdresses and people getting eating by lions (Ok, »

Neil Triffett on the set of 'Newton's Law'.

Emo the Musical director Neil Triffett spent the tail-end of 2016 as an attachment on TV series Newton.s Law, starring Claudia Karvan and produced by Miss Fisher.s Deb Cox and Fiona Eagger..

Triffett.s placement was organised through Film Vic.s attachment scheme.

.He.s had a smorgasbord,. says Eagger, talking to If mid-shoot last year. .He sat in a lot of meetings. Because he's around for the whole shoot and he's been doing some behind the scenes for us, he's sort of become part of the furniture and as a consequence I think got great access..

.The production pays for part of his wage, and he has days where he does behind the scenes and days where he's purely a director's attachment. He also gets the opportunity to direct — he's just shot a scene for us...

Eagger is no stranger to the scheme, »
