the black dahlia

As with all noir, by necessity style plays an important role. In this case I would say the mise-en-scene rises to the level of a main character. Brian De Palma is well known for favouring style over substance, but in The Black Dahlia this unexpected upstart of a character steals the show and never gives any of the other characters a look-in.

the l word: season 3

I complain contsantly that television has a habit of shaving off all the rough edges of life and not giving it to us the way that life usually is; harsh, brutal, unforgiving. You can’t say that about season three. They made some dubious creative decisions, but you can’t say that they made the journey easy for us. And for one character the journey ended.
