The L Word: Lexington and Concord (2007)
My awesome bedspread
This show has become strangely addicting. It doesn't have the best writing and sometimes the scenarios make you roll your eyes and seem quite contrived, but it's got a lot of characters that you love or hate (ugh Jenny). If a show is able to elicit an emotion (positive or negative), that makes it a good show I guess. The main reason I wanted to write this review though is because when Kit and Papi are in bed together I noticed that Papi TOTALLY HAS THE SAME EXACT IKEA BEDSPREAD THAT I DO. The set department definitely furnishes with Ikea stuff. It's a really nice bedspread. It's pink with stripes. It was a really cool sensation to see it in a show, almost like seeing a friend I recognized. In fact I'd say that that was the closest I've ever come to recognizing a familiar face in a movie or a TV show. I don't know if that makes me cool or pathetic, but whatever. I like my bedspread and I respect the creators of this show all the more for their excellent taste.
Stuart: A Life Backwards (2007)
Great film about an intriguing man
This was a very touching movie. It tells the story of a man who, through a series of misfortunes throughout his life, has turned to crime, drugs, and violence. Despite Stuart's checkered past he proves to be a deep and compassionate person who you really can't help but become endeared to. The most heartbreaking thing is learning how this child was abused and somewhat pushed down the path of failure that he encountered. It really says a lot about the state of welfare, mental health care, and social services in society.
Tom Hardy and Benedict Cumberbatch were both excellent. Tom Hardy especially has proved to be an extremely transformative actor in every role I've seen him in and I look forward to seeing him in more things in the future.
