    Little Shop of Horrors

    ★★★★½

    I rewatched Little Shop of Horrors last night and thought about what my dream casting would be if they remade it. Evidently that’s already in the works. I almost puked when I saw the pre-production cast list on IMDB (well mostly just Audrey). There’s still time to fire that casting director and go with mine. This is very important, y’all 

    Seymour Krelborn: Donald Glover or Leslie Odom Jr

    Audrey: Cynthia Erivo

    Mr. Mushnik: Ben Mendelsohn
     
    Orin Scrivello, DDS: Maya…

    National Theatre Live: The Deep Blue Sea

    ★★★

    Staging was great and the filming was awesome. It is impressive how close they come to capturing live performance. I miss being able to watch people not speaking but it is another beast. 

    The writing is weak in the beginning and makes the actors seem like amateurs but it gets better. I would have liked to have seen it edited down to 90min with no intermission but it might make the one long day seem even less plausible. The way the music loops is haunting.

    Beautiful shots, dialogue and emotional drive. Having just seen Handmaiden, these two movies couldn't have been more different yet the stories were both framed similarly in three acts and focus on the "taboo" of same sex couplings. It jogs a lot of memories of pivotal moments from your childhood that shape you socially and sexually.

    “Whatever you imagine your life is going to be like, know your life is not going to be anything like that.”

    This is my favorite thing in 2017 so far. I'm a huge Beginners fan so I couldn't wait for this to be released in Chicago. Maybe it was the hopeless single mom vibe that really hit home. Not quite bohemian but accidentally the effect which my mom floundered in most of our lives together. Annette Benning is so perfectly lost, vulnerable and understated. It was breathtaking to watch. And there is nothing cooler than Greta Gerwig trying to make her way.
