It’s time for a double amount of monthly favourites!
An American In Paris (Musical Play)
An American In Paris may be the most successful musical play in London at the moment. I went to see it at the Dominion Theatre (which is a very beautiful venue by the way) and really enjoyed it. It is an adaptation of the 1951 eponymous movie, which recounts the story of Jerry Mulligan, an American veteran who stays in Paris to become a painter after World War II and falls in love with a girl who is already engaged to a friend of his (the friend is a French wannabe singer from a rich family).
today we’re talking series and podcasts I loved in April.
S-Town is the podcast everyone has been raving about in the last few weeks. I have checked it out upon the recommendation of a colleague and oh boy it was awesome! Produced by the producers of Serial and hosted by Brian Reed, S-Town is a 7 episode-investigative podcast that was made over three years. Everything started in 2012, when John B. McLemore, a horologist from Woodstock, Alabama, emailed the staff of This American Life to ask them to investigate a murder having allegedly taken place in Woodstock and been covered by the local police.
I liked plenty of things in March so it was high time for my March Favourites post!
Freaks and Geeks (TV Series)
Freaks and Geeks is an amazing comedy-drama TV show from the nineties that I have only recently discovered. It is incredibly funny while also tackling a few ‘serious’ issues.
Hi guys! 2017 started very well with a month of January rich in discoveries and I have four favourites to share with you: two movies, a photography exhibition and – what a surprise! – a podcast.
I have recently watched Whiplash, Damien Chazelle‘s second movie, which was released in 2014 (thanks Netflix), and I absolutely loved it. This drama movie won a bunch of awards and was unanimously acclaimed by critics when it was released, so chances are that you have already seen or at least heard about it but I HAD TO to mention it here. Whiplash narrates the story of Andrew Neiman, a first-year jazz student at the prestigious Shaffer Conservatory in New York whose objective is to become a professional drummer.
Yes, 2017 is here and this post already feels so out-dated but hey, there is no way you are going to escape my December Favourites! In December, I watched one of the best movies I had watched in a long time and I also really enjoyed a podcast and a Youtube channel.
We Need To Talk About Kevin (Movie)
This movie gave me a big slap. Can you say this in english? I don’t care, I’m saying it. It is a creepy, disturbing, thrilling, fascinating movie that really really shook me. I felt a need to talk about it for days after watching it. It is not a new movie, it was released in 2011 but I have only watched it recently (thanks Netflix!) and I liked it so much that I decided to include it here. Plus, I’m sure plenty of you have also missed it.
It’s high time for my very belated November favourites! This month, I fell in love with two podcasts and a Youtube channel, and, for the first time, I also have a music favourite!
I have already recommended this podcast to lots of people but I feel like this is still not enough… It is one of the best podcasts I have ever listened to (and I am now becoming a sort of podcast connoisseur!). Created and hosted by film journalist, critic and author Karina Longworth, who has an amazing voice, this cinema podcast focuses on the “secrets and forgotten history of Hollywood’s first century”.
