Weekly Digest

This is what I’m digging this week.

She’s Gotta Have It (TV Series)

I’m trying not to binge this one too quickly because I’m finding it really enjoyable. DeWanda Wise‘s Nola Darling is mesmerising to watch, so it’s no wonder she’s juggling three very different men at once. Not only that but the show addresses topics that include sexual assault, female sexuality and victim blaming (so far).  

SGHI is of course based on the Spike Lee movie of the same name – and so far, I’m a fan. I love the soundtrack too, which handily is framed not just as an afterthought but as a character of its own – and all the tracks are clearly signposted.

People suck

Doctor Foster

Everyone said it was good and maybe it’s been over-hyped just a smidge – but I still gobbled up the both series like the greedy guts that I am. It was satisfying but also infuriating and I think the take home I got from this is that people can be the worst. Men, women – everybody.

Doctor Foster herself isn’t even all that nice, hurting people in her own pain. Her female friends are all shits with no sense of fucking loyalty. The husband’s lying and cheating is the main event sure, but nobody comes out of this well.

Still, bloody compelling to watch though! I’ve actually just finished it and I hope they leave it there. I mean, of course I’d watch more – I just don’t think I can take it. I have thoughts on the ending, which I won’t share but I’m not surprised it split the nation so much, it could and should have been better.

Awkward, this is the exact ensemble I’m wearing to the Christmas do

Utopia – Björk

Weird, wonderful and no, I probably don’t get the subtle nuances yet but I love Björk more than I love myself. Also, this is a great walking soundtrack.

So crunchy, I can almost feel it

The Cold

Crisp mornings are the best. Cold evenings are even better. I love Winter.

Call Me By Your Name – Andre Aciman

I’ve just been gifted this book for my birthday, which I’m overjoyed by. The film was so wonderful, truly one of the best of this year (and DBo, who gave me the book was also my movie going partner for that one).

I have high hopes – and it is now firmly on my Winter Reading List.

What are you digging?
