Elokuvallisia huomioita maailmalta 23.02.2014 – 24.02.2014

  • Emily Nussbaum: The Shallowness of “True Detective” – Don’t get me wrong: I love a nice bouncy rack. And if a show has something smart to say about sex, bring it on. But, after years of watching “Boardwalk Empire,” “Ray Donovan,” “House of Lies,” and so on, I’ve turned prickly, and tired of trying to be, in the novelist Gillian Flynn’s useful phrase, the Cool Girl: a good sport when something smells like macho nonsense. And, frankly, “True Detective” reeks of the stuff. The series, for all its good looks and its movie-star charisma, isn’t just using dorm-room deep talk as a come-on: it has fallen for its own sales pitch.
  • Antti Lindqvist – Enter The Gonzo Dragon – Tämänkertainen merkintä on tosipohjainen kasaritoimintaeepos. Keskiöön nostetaan toimittajan veijarihuumori ja muuan unohdettu kung fu -seikkailu.

    Miljöö on vuoden 1982 Cannesin elokuvafestivaali, jossa Lindqvist edusti Katso-lehteä. Matkalla syntyi myös gonzoreportaasi Suomen elokuvakerhojen liiton Projektio-lehteen (3/1982).

  • Julia Louis-Dreyfus in the Present Tense – So how about this? If comedy (as opposed to drama) is consumed more like popular music—as a series of moments, often enjoyed with friends, remembered fondly in a greatest-hits kind of way—then Julia Louis-Dreyfus is not the Billy Joel of television comedy, but the Elton John: a national treasure, still trying to surprise us.
