Me, You, and Everyone We Know
Me, You, and Everyone We Know (USA, 2005, IFC Films) is the antithesis of an “art” film. Director Miranda July plays an artist who has a day-job as an elder cab driver. She meets a man at a shopping center. They have baggage they bring to the table and start to unpack. It’s a lovely and in some moments very inappropriate film about how we make connections in a disconnected world. Available on Hulu and iTunes.
I binge-watched Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (USA, 2015, CW Television Network) in the span of four days. Rachel Bloom has created a YouTube identity and turned her online celebrity into an opportunity resulting in a totally insane series about a woman who’s completely obsessed with a young love from eighth-grade camp. The comedy is off the charts as all of the characters navigate total relationship disasters. There’s singing and dancing, and most of it is irreverent and unapologetic, and you’ll be addicted, I promise! Available on Hulu and Amazon Video.
