Since I just brought up Luca Guadagnino (he's got a new project, see here) I am immediately awash in guilt that I haven't written anything about his HBO show We Are Who We Are ending its (first?) season this week -- you know, in case you hadn't noticed, there have been other things on our minds. And I use the past tense there but that's bad usage because, uhh, we're still pretty distracted! So can I form much in the way of coherent thinking? That implies I ever have in my long life, but still -- no, no I cannot. Nothing of much substance or depth, anyway.
Y'all know from the opinions I have scattered here and there though that I loved the show, and I continued loving the show right through its closing frames. I know for the most part people didn't! I have gotten those comments every time I've written anything up on it. But I did, and especially Jack Dylan Grazer's endearingly irritating Fraser, which is especially an unpopular opinion. I don't care! I found his spastic weirdness a n absolute delight -- he made me laugh every single time they cut to him, in impossible times.
One thing I think even people who didn't enjoy the show do agree on (besides Tom Mercier's blisteringly hot fuckery anyway) is that the score was wonderful, so here's some good news I can share -- they're releasing it on vinyl in January! You can buy it over on Amazon -- it looks gorgeous, which is only fitting. So... anyway. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments about how you hated it. Or surprise me with some love, even!
