Modern Family (2009)
For Christopher Guest Fans
this is shot in a mockumentary style, and i loved it. it's very reminiscent of Christopher Guest's films, so if you love Best in Show, For Your consideration, then give this show a look, you'd like it.
it pretty much condensed the families into several archetypes: the gay couple adopting an Asian baby, the older wealthy man with a younger foreign wife, the "cool" neo-American young couple.
while i doubt that they will weave complex plot lines, watching the interactions between the family members with their surrounding, and their family dynamic is fascinating enough.
i enjoyed it. i recommend people to watch it.
Lola + Bilidikid (1999)
a pleasant surprise
surprisingly, i actually like this movie, as it encapsulated - though rather exaggerated, and very stereotypically - the essence of homophobia, and closet homosexual, and self-loathing in the Muslim community, in this case the Turkish family in Germany.
i especially love the scene where lola, hinted to bili that the reason why she has been postponing/doubting the gender reassignment surgery is because she knows that deep down, bili is a homosexual.
though the story about iskander and von skeect was a little rushed, but it was a nice touch.
the acting were great, the script was all right, and it was a pleasant surprise.
