A Conversation About "Westworld"- Part 2

A conversation betweenLynn LeeandKieran Scarlett. At the end ofPart 1of the discussion,Lynn left us to wonder just how long "Westworld"can keep this story going.We pick up where we left off.

Warning: Spoilers Ahead

Kieran:That's an excellent point about Marsden and Wood's performances that I hadn't considered.I did think Wood was much more compelling in the second episode than she was in the pilot.I found myself adjusting to the tonal rhythms of her performance,which are quite specific.I appreciate that there isn't a rigid uniformity to how the actors portray AIs.Each has their own texture and we're not just watching actors play mindless automatons,which would have been so boring.That we get insight into their creators and programmers based on how each AI behaves is also an intriguing facet to the performances that I suspect will be explored more fully as the series progresses.

A Conversation About "Westworld"- Part 1

This week,Team Experience membersLynn LeeandKieran Scarletthave tackled the first two episodes of new HBO sci-fi drama,"Westworld,"which has captured the interest,fascination (or ire,depending on who you talk to) of audiences.Here's Part 1 of the 2 part discussion...

Warning: Spoilers Ahead

KIERAN: Watching the "Westworld"pilot and then the second episode,my immediate reaction—even in thinking that the pilot was relatively strong and an intriguing opening statement to the show—was that these two episodes should be reversed.   I might even go so far as to say that the pilot,with all of its beautifully creepy,world-establishing glory (more on this later) is missable when held up against the power (both narratively and stylistically) of the second episode...

Issa Rae: A Star is Born

byKieran Scarlett

It's an incredibly exciting thing to watch the emergence of new on-screen talent whose charisma and star quality cannot be denied.  It's difficult to describe clearly,but it's clear to a watchful viewer when it happens.  Such is the case with Issa Rae,star and co-creator of the new HBO comedy "Insecure"set to debut next month (the pilot episode is already available online via HBO Now).The series,which is co-created by Larry Wilmore (formerly of "The Daily Show") announces Rae as a force to be reckoned with,both in front of and behind the camera.

The show is,in some ways,an extension of Rae's 2011 web series "The Mis-Adventures of Awkward Black Girl"...

Spike Lee Coming to Netflix

byKieran Scarlett

It wasrecently announcedthat Netflix has ordered ten episodes of a TV series adaptation of Spike Lee's 1986 debut feature filmShe's Gotta Have It.  Lee will direct all ten episodes.  The age of prestige television truly allows for more fluid movement (at least behind the camera) from film to TV and back again.Spike Lee's last few features (despite good notices forChi-raq) have had trouble catching fire outside of the arthouse the way his earlier work has,for this reason or that.He's certainly a polarizing figure and resistance to his work is built in to certain audiences.

Tracy Camilla Johns and Spike Lee in SHE'S GOTTA HAVE IT (1986)

Have you seenShe's Gotta Have It?It's a very fascinating piece,both on its own and in the larger context of Lee's filmography.There's a beautifully bare-bones energy to it that one would expect from a debut,but it still retains Lee's voice,vigor and artistry.It's also has a refreshing focus on female characters in a way that even ardent fans of Lee's work can't argue is missing from much of his filmography.

Lee's previous notable foray into television gave us the beautiful and vital"When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts,"his in-depth and personal HBO documentary about Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath (if you haven't seen it,get thee to HBO on demand as soon as possible).Spike Lee adapting his voice for television is definitely something that could yield interesting results.

"She's Gotta Have It"is expected to premiere on Netflix next year.Will you be watching?

Emmy Spotlight - Best Actress in a Miniseries or Movie

byEric Blume

We love our actresses,and the Emmy race for Best Actress,Limited Series or Movie on Sunday night is filled with very good ones.  Let's take a look at who's in the running and who the winner might be.

Kirsten Dunstnabbed her first Emmy nomination in her freshman foray into television for her role as a deluded hairdresser in season two ofFargo.  Unlike Nathaniel,I'm not a huge fan of Dunst,but her work here is probably the best thing she's ever done outside ofMelancholia.  What she pulls off here is a very tricky blend of naturalism and heightened comedy,a dangerous high-wire act that could have fallen flat quite easily...
