How HBO’s Succession Ruined 2005’s Pride and Prejudice

How HBO’s Succession Ruined 2005’s Pride and Prejudice
Anyone still giddy on fumes having devoured the whole of sexy, sexy Bridgerton, might well be looking for more love machinations, posh dresses and ladies attending dances. You may well be tempted then by 2005’s Pride and Prejudice which is available to stream on Netflix. After all, this is one of the starriest and most lavish period productions around, packed with stone cold talent. The Bennett family alone boasts Carey Mulligan, Rosamund Pike, Jenna Malone, Brenda Blethyn and Donald Sutherland as well as the movie’s star Keira Knightley. It’s directed by Joe Wright who knows his onions when it comes to period movies after Anna Karenina, Atonement and The Darkest Hour.

Nicolas Winding Refn's "Too Old to Die Young" Is Slow and Sublime

Nicolas Winding Refn is an aesthete; his films vacuous yet gorgeous, replete with all kinds of technical bravado, sly camera movements, images that glisten, over-saturated colors, aphotic darkness, and thrumming music. He’s as philosophical as the college sophomore who just discovered Heidegger. But his craftsmanship! As Nietzsche said, “All of life is a dispute over taste,” and Refn certainly isn’t for everybody. His new Amazon show, Too Old to Die Young, is glacial and gaudy, repetitive, a shiny, neon-sodden traipse into an ugly underworld set to an anxious, irascible electronic score and digitally photographed so assiduously, so obsessively, with its slow zooms and precise pans and persnickety compositions that look like modern art installations, anyone who doesn’t nerd out over that kind of stuff will probably find the series insufferable.
