Media Diary (October 2021)

Some stuff I’ve experienced lately (and not necessarily only new releases):

Squid Game (TV): Believe the hype, this is crazily dark and entertaining

No Time To Die (Movie): Big thumbs up, a great way to end the Daniel Craig era (and really the Bond era to date)

Succession (TV): Still impossibly good

Dune (Movie): Really enjoyed the new version, and also went back to re-watch the David Lynch original (which has its moments!)

Dopesick (TV): A compelling look at a tragic topic (with Michael Keaton elevating everything as usual)

The Many Saints of Newark (Movie): It was great to be back in this world for a short time

Curb Your Enthusiasm (TV): All hail the king

Four Hours at The Capitol (Movie): Legitimately terrifying

The Way Down: God, Greed and the Cult of Gwen Shamblin (TV): I’m obviously an absolute sucker for this kind of stuff

Venom: Let There Be Carnage (Movie): Better than the first one (more over-the-top, plus you can’t go wrong with Woody)

Scenes From a Marriage (Movie): Loved the remake, and also enjoyed this gender-swapped original version

Love on The Spectrum (TV): I find this show incredibly charming

15 Minutes of Shame (Movie): A fascinating look at public shaming from someone who knows a bit about it

The Velvet Underground (Movie): Interesting, but didn’t blow my mind as some reviews had led me to expect

The Problem With Jon Stewart (TV): Still finding its legs, but covering important stuff

Dave Chappelle: The Closer (Movie): Obviously this is clouded in controversy, but you certainly can’t accuse him of shying away from public conversation

Monsters Inside: The 24 Faces of Billy Milligan (TV): What a ride

Introducing, Selma Blair (Movie): Deep respect to her for being this open about her condition
