On Netflix search for a movie called Love, directed by Gaspar Noe. The opening scene by itself is shocking, and later in you will find real, not simulated sex, even a threesome. It is hardcore porn, any ten-year old can easily access it. What is going on here? Netflix is pushing the envelope.
Not that I watched it or anything. The lead actor plays a morose and depressed self-centered loser, and I got tired of listening to him, never making it to the end. “STFU, more sex, less talking!” was my only thought.
Jerry Seinfeld does Comedians in Cars Having Coffee, a series I enjoy. In other interviews he says that after wealth and fame arrived, he could have easily become a show business asshole. He wants to be a regular guy, and I enjoy him, think he is genuinely that, funny and self effacing with a sharp mind and quick wit.
One of his episodes is with Jerry Lewis, then in his 90s and soon thereafter to die. Seinfeld paid him a nice tribute, blew some smoke up his ass, even saying “If you don’t get Jerry Lewis, you don’t get comedy.” Fair enough. I get Lewis, just never much cared for his brand of slapstick, personal taste and all of that.
Here is what is interesting, to me: Go to the Lewis episode on Netflix, and see what you can make of the conversation that transpires at 13:40 forward. I cannot show it here as it is walled off. But it is something like one insider signaling another, as I viewed it.
Otherwise, you won’t be bored. Seinfeld is always about comedy first.
