Well, it’s not really a Throwback Thursday post–however, it seems we are now in a time where anything over five years old is considered, well, old. Outre. Retro. In need of a movie remake because it’s so dated.
So, in the post-Olympic depressive state, I resumed watching Engrenages, or Spiral, on Netflix. (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0477507/) I guess a Season Six is in the works. Yay for us!
I love it for so many reasons.
- It’s French.
- The actors look like real, live humans, not plastic (male/female/other) dolls.
- The actors also act like real humans, not rote mouthpieces spouting predictable lines.
- The graphic visuals are pretty intense, and I love the lighting used.
- Somehow, it makes me want to be French/live in France, even though Paris is not depicted as a cozy, lovely, romantic environment.
Can’t wait for the next season–coming in 2017!
