All’s Well That Ends Well – William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare - All's Well That Ends Well  artwork

All’s Well That Ends Well

William Shakespeare

Genre: Art & Architecture

Publish Date: June 13, 2018

Publisher: Flip

Seller: Bookwire GmbH


All's Well That Ends Well is a play by William Shakespeare, originally classified as a comedy, though now often counted as one of his problem plays, so-called because they cannot be easily classified as tragedy or comedy. It was probably written in later middle part of Shakespeare's career, between 1601 and 1608, and was first published in the First Folio in 1623. The name of the play comes from the proverb All's well that ends well, which means that problems do not matter so long as the outcome is good.

Voice of equality through music ends Proms season

US conductor Marin Alsop performs at the last night of the BBC Proms festival of classical music at the Royal Albert Hall in London, BritainAmerican conductor Marin Alsop brought the 120th season of the Proms, the world's biggest and longest running music festival, to a close in London on Saturday, with an acknowledgement of the power of music to help overcome inequality. "It's clear inequality is one of the greatest challenges facing us today," said Alsop, who returned to the podium to lead the BBC Symphony Orchestra through the traditional Last Night of the Proms celebrations two years after becoming the first woman to conduct the concert. In the cavernous, oval-shaped Albert Hall, German tenor Jonas Kaufmann continued the final evening's eclectic musical program with a selection of Puccini arias, including 'Nessun Dorma', while Danielle de Niese, described by the New York Times as "opera's coolest soprano", led an audience sing-along of a medley of songs from The Sound of Music in celebration of the film's 50th anniversary.

Last-Minute Swimwear to Buy Before Summer Ends

Matte Swim; Ward Whillas dune top, $ 190; wardwhillas.com; Ward Whillas Marina bottom, $ 160; wardwhillas.com; Rochelle Sara the Garine top, $ 190; rochellesara.com; Rochelle Sara the Mercer bottom, price upon request; rochellesara.com

It’s the tail end of summer—but don’t pack up your swimwear just yet. There’s plenty more time to frolic in the saltwater and enjoy a last-minute sand-strewn vacation. And what do you need for the rest of the dog days? A fresh new swimsuit to match. Here, three cool labels to keep in stock for the rest of the swelter.

The Line: Ward Whillas
The Backstory: The longtime friends Rosie Ward Densen and Alicia Whillas have always known that they wanted to start a label together. Initially, a ready-to-wear brand felt like the most natural next step—which made sense coming off of ten years working as designers at Marc Jacobs, The Row, and Proenza Schouler—but what was even more instinctive for the two Aussie-born buddies? Swimwear.
The Look: Understated and sophisticated. Upon first glance, there is no mistaking the designers’ penchants for athletic-minded silhouettes and graphic, minimal prints. Upon further inspection, one learns that each bikini and one-piece is also smartly assembled. Each and every suit (made from quick-dry Italian fabrics) is constructed using new, heat-sealed technologies that were previously only utilized in high-performance activewear. In layman’s terms? Seamless, sculpting, and UV protecting. Oh, and reversible.
Where to Find Them: Bergdorf Goodman and select concept stores including Opening Ceremony.

 

The Line: Rochelle Sara
The Backstory: Rochelle Sara Gan grew up competitively training with her local Florida swim team. For the designer, racing garb is second skin. So, when she left Giulietta to design her namesake label, she applied the best of function (woven rather than knitted, jersey fabrics) and fashion (sleek silhouettes in a superchic palette) to her standout suits.
The Look: Think back to the nineties and what you would imagine Carolyn Bessette Kennedy, Christy Turlington Burns, and Kara Young wearing while vacationing. That nostalgic nod turns up in the minimal yet severe shapes of each piece. And best of all, they’re updated in sporty cuts that more closely resemble a Helmut Lang sports bra rather than an itty-bitty bikini top.
Where to Find Them: rochellesara.com

 

The Line: Matte Swim
The Backstory: The debut Australian swimwear designer Ilona Hamer first got her start at Australian Vogue. It was there she accredits the invaluable lesson that “you don’t need everything; you just need the right things.” Hamer, who still has her hand in the editorial world as a contributing fashion editor for Russh magazine as well as fashion director at Unconditional magazine, designs between New York City and Sydney, Australia, alongside her business partner and sister Peta Heinsen.
The Look: To the editor turned designer, the right things don’t include padding, cutouts, or strings dangling off one’s bathers. The collection is all about creating a sense of confidence and a sense of ease via a concise three-piece, three-color offering of the timeless classics: a simple shelf-bra set, a demure triangle top and high-wasted briefs, and plunging one-piece that features an athletic crisscross across the back.
Where to Find Them: Directly order online for now, matteswim.com, but this October, the brand will launch e-commerce.

Muscular Dystrophy Association Ends Jerry Lewis Telethon

LOS ANGELES, May 1 (Reuters) – The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) said Friday it will end its long-standing Labor Day telethon, aired on the ABC network, to focus on more digital fundraising efforts after the success of last year’s ALS Ice Bucket challenge.

The organization’s annual telethon, hosted by comedian Jerry Lewis from its inception in 1956, has seen its broadcast cut from its standard 21 and a half hours, last seen during Lewis’ final hosting stint in 2010, to just two hours last year.

“In the last few years, the show was adjusted to reflect changes in viewership and donor patterns,” MDA’s president and chief executive, Steven M. Derks, said.

“Last summer’s Ice Bucket Challenge once again affirmed for us that today’s families, donors and sponsors are looking to us for new, creative and organic ways to support our mission.

The MDA aims to raise awareness and improve the lives of people suffering from muscular dystrophy, a rare muscle-wasting genetic disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and other related diseases. So far, there is no cure.

The ALS Association, which funds research into ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, found a surprise fund-raising hit last year when it launched its Ice Bucket Challenge.

MDA’s telethon, most recently named “Show of Strength,” raised $ 56.9 million over the 2014 Labor Day weekend.

But the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, a viral phenomenon that drew everyone from average citizens to celebrities nominating each other to donate to the cause or pour a bucket of ice over their heads, raised $ 100 million in just a month last year, the ALS Association said.

The MDA said it will be investing in digital and mobile platforms to engage with the public, and will continue sharing stories of families living with muscular dystrophy on Labor Day.

Part Ways From Your Split Ends

Split ends are an all too common problem for us all. Naturally your hair type plays a role in how many and how often you get them, but certain habits are also responsible for causing split ends. Before we discuss some tips for getting rid of split ends, we feel it’s important to explain what causes them.

Heat styling, or straightening your hair, is one of the biggest causes of split ends. This is especially true if you straighten your hair without protective products. For clients that use heat styling on a regular basis, we recommend using salon-quality products to keep your hair healthy and split end free.

Another cause of split ends is not making regular hair appointments. Split ends naturally occur over time and its best to have a professional take care of them. Split ends arise when the protective outer layer of the hair cuticle wears away. As it disappears your hair becomes weakened, damaged and dehydrated.

Here are the best tips for getting rid of split ends:

1. Make an effort to take folic acid and biotin supplements – Keeping the body nourished with the right vitamins and minerals is always good practice. Taking folic acid and biotin supplements will promote cell turnover and cell proliferation.

2. Careful with heat styling – It’s perfectly fine to use hair straighteners, curling irons and blow dryers as long as you use the right protective products such as Hot Off The Press From Paul Mitchell.

2015-03-25-1427250200-7345540-pm_expressstyle_hofoffthepress_product.jpg

3. Use deep conditioning treatments – This should be done on a weekly basis. One of the best options is an acai deep conditioning masque by Brazilian blowout. Other treatments are available, we also suggest coconut oil.

2015-03-25-1427250241-2488439-brazilianblowoutacaideepconditioningmasque278x278.jpg

4. Split end treatments – There are split end repair solutions available. For a small additional cost to your regular hair service you repair your split ends at a certified Brazilian blowout hair salon. Such treatments will provide additional protection to your hair so that it seals split ends and prevents new ones from developing.

5. Avoid brushing wet hair – A common mistake people make is brushing their hair when it’s wet. This is an easy way to cause breakage. Instead wait until the hair is dry or buy a comb that is designed to get through wet hair. Here at On-Site Studio Hair Salon we love to use the wet brush.

2015-03-25-1427250310-783483-proselect_group1.jpg

6. Schedule hair appointments regularly – It’s best to see your hair stylist every 6-8 weeks. The longer you wait to treat your split ends, the worse they’ll get. If split ends go untreated for too long, the damage may travel up the hair shaft and cause addition problems.

Do your best to go out and find some protective products and treatments that can fight off split ends before they arise. We hope these split end tips work for you the next time you’re faced with damaging hair.

DVDs: “The Hobbit” Ends Sadly, “Gates Of Heaven” Delights and “The Sure Thing” Is A Sure Thing

Some lovely, under-appreciated animated features, two classic documentaries that Roger Ebert loved and the exhausting finale to what was once the highly anticipated Hobbit movies.

2015-03-24-1427176284-3871750-91cNcMeeIrL._SL1500_.jpg

THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES ($ 44.95 BluRay combo; Warner Home Video)
EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS ($ 49.99 3-D BluRay Deluxe; Fox)

Two lumbering epics. Exodus: Gods and Kings is not really a disappointment since director Ridley Scott has seemed lost for many years now. Unlike online flamers, I don’t have an issue with the film’s approach to the religious aspect of the story. It’s just a whole lot of fuss and feels exactly like a Fox “epic” from the 1960s, which is a horrible insult. Some of the big spectacle moments are satisfying and Christian Bale is an imposing hero. But the campy yet sincere Charlton Heston The Ten Commandments remains more satisfying on every level.

The final Hobbit movie brings a sad end to what should have been a triumph. Director Peter Jackson was brilliant on The Lord Of The Rings, one of the great film fantasies of all time. It was essentially right in tune with the material from start to finish and a remarkable accomplishment. His initial instinct to avoid trying to duplicate/top that experience with The Hobbit was the right one. Everything about this whole venture has been disastrous on a Phantom Menace level. The first film was shockingly bad on a dramatic level. The second was somewhat proficient but anonymously so, with almost none of the actual spirit of either the book itself or the more mature, darker vision of Middle Earth that flowered in The Lord Of The Rings (both film and book). The focus on technology — again, just like Phantom Menace — turned the triumphant craft work of LOTR into digital disaster with scenes looking like video games. Now we have the finale. The tone of the book is very different, much more picaresque than the adult LOTR, but it climaxes with a remarkably mature turn of events led by Bilbo Baggins that is deeply moving. It may be for kids, but the price paid emotionally is genuine and pretty amazing in context. Well, Martin Freeman was wonderful casting but the film is so determined to lead up to LOTR that it’s far more worried about the grand battles than the grand bargain Bilbo makes to achieve peace. Moments work here, unlike either of the other two films. And as always with Jackson the extras are plentiful and top-notch. But what a dreadful waste of talent from all involved.

2015-03-24-1427175931-2136224-91QeIx4ZfBL._SL1500_.jpg

TOP FIVE ($ 39.99 BluRay combo; Paramount)

It’s not enough to say this is Chris Rock’s best movie. That is faint praise given his track record. Rock’s real success has been as a stand-up comic and the sweet, but sharp TV show Everybody Hates Chris which successfully mined his childhood and launched a clutch of talented actors. So Top Five is better than all the other bad live action movies he has appeared in. But it’s actually good good — a paean to Woody Allen, a romantic comedy, a savvy look at the life of a stand-up and pretty darn funny. It’s not great great, just good good. But as writer and director and star, Rock finally got the chance to show his stuff and hint that he may just have theatrical greatness in him.

MR. BEAN: THE WHOLE BEAN ($ 24.97 DVD; Shout! Factory)
FIREBALL XL5: THE COMPLETE SERIES ($ 29.93 DVD; Shout! Factory)

Well, let’s not compare Rowan Atkinson’s Mr. Bean to actual silent film greats like Laurel & Hardy or god forbid Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, et al. But just as Jacques Tati’s movies delighted simply for being silent comedies in an era when silent comedies were naturally all but extinct, Atkinson’s trouble prone Bean was a breath of fresh air in the early 1990s when he first appeared. Just as Westerns are so welcome when they’ve been off screen for a long time, the pratfall antics of Bean seemed like a revelation. And not surprisingly they played well all over the world since dialogue is not an issue. This set remasters all 14 episodes of the original run. Someday they’ll slap together all the movies, the animated series and these episodes, but this is plenty for casual fans.

Hardcore devotees of supermarionation devised by Gerry Anderson are surely the only ones who will be eagerly awaiting the complete series Fireball XL5. If you haven’t seen Thunderbirds, that’s clearly the place to start. But just as Mr. Bean is so delightful for being a new stab at silent comedy, the retro joy of Anderson’s work is seeing sci-fi spectacles and elaborate action scenes being staged by puppets with strings often clearly visible and the models of space ships zooming past backdrops wonderfully obvious. It’s not cheaply done or klutzy but unquestionably done with love and just as enjoyable as plopping down in a public park and watching a performer enact Punch & Judy. In other words, the joy of performing and bringing a story to life is more important than the quality or more exactly the style of special effects. That’s why Star Wars will endure and the “superior” digital effects of Phantom Menace et al pale quickly. Here you’ve got adventures in space as Earth colonizes the stars but needs an action team to fight danger, stage rescues and the like. What might surprise parents is how quickly little kids will embrace the storytelling even though they should reject it as fake looking.

GATES OF HEAVEN/VERNON, FLORIDA ($ 39.95 BluRay; Criterion)
JOHN FORD: DREAMING THE QUIET MAN ($ 29.95 BluRay; Olive Films)
OPEN SESAME: THE STORY OF SEEDS ($ 24.98 DVD; Disinformation Company)

Whenever I watch the early masterpieces of filmmaker Errol Morris, I can’t help thinking of Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel. They championed Morris and rightly so since he’s proven one of the most influential documentary filmmakers in history. His first two gems are collected by Criterion in a package that is not as extras heavy as some of their other sets but is welcome nonetheless for enshrining these movies in excellent prints and bringing them to the attention of movie lovers everywhere. Morris would go on to make formally beautiful movies like The Thin Blue Line. Here his resources are more modest but what he accomplishes on a shoe string is remarkable. Gates Of Heaven is about a pet cemetery; Vernon, Florida is about a small town seemingly populated with more than its fair share of kooks. Both are warmly fascinated by the odd ducks that populate them and tell the stories of these people with open-minded curiosity. If one had the sense that Morris ever felt superior to the folk discussing the elaborate funeral plots for their beloved pets or the trailer park folk with their odd obsessions, the movies would become unpleasant. But Morris is fascinated and delighted and genuinely interested in letting these people reveal themselves in all their eccentric beauty. I’ll simply never forget the person in Vernon who has a jar of sand they collected, sand that grows. (Huh? Watch it.) Essential viewing.

St. Patrick’s Day has passed and if you’re any sort of cinephile and Irish lover, you watched John Ford’s romantic classic The Quiet Man. Anyone who still thinks John Wayne can’t act should watch his young action hero in Stagecoach followed by his bitterly racist anti-hero in The Searchers followed by his broodingly quiet but very funny and romantic turn in The Quiet Man. And once you’ve done that you’ll be a fan for life of the gorgeous Irish countryside, the gorgeous Maureen O’Hara and Wayne himself. After that, you’ll want to learn more. It’s a shame this new documentary narrated by Gabriel Byrne isn’t included in an elaborate BluRay presentation of the film but it’s definitely worth watching for anyone who has devoured that delightful film time and again. I had no idea it took Ford 20 years to make this movie, which is based on a short story in Saturday Evening Post. It seems so delightfully commercial and broadly appealing you’d think studios would be lined up to make it. This documentary tells how that wasn’t so, about the western Ford and Wayne and O’Hara had to make just to get this film off the ground and the impact it had on other filmmakers like Martin Scorsese. And who knew that insanely catchy central theme was written by a cop? It doesn’t get more Irish than that.

Open Sesame: The Story Of Seeds is truly guerrilla filmmaking: it’s a passionate labor of love about seeds, their essential role in our food system and how that role is threatened. Watch it and you’ll learn about the devastating impact of various patents that have turned seeds from a self-propagating resource into a commodity that must be purchased over and over. (Many commercially manufactured seeds are now designed NOT to provide fertile seeds from a crop that could be planted the following year. Thus you have to go back to the big agra combine to buy your seeds every single year.) Other dangers include a dangerous emphasis on massive planting of mono-crops, the same plantings with the same genetic code over and over again, which means any successful attack on that crop can have devastating effects. (Varied seeds with varied genetics as well as the planting of varied crops all can mitigate that vulnerability.) It also deals with GMO but the film is not focused on that one aspect since the story and survival of seeds goes far beyond that one issue.

INTO THE WOODS ($ 39.99 BluRay combo; Disney)
THE SOUND OF MUSIC 50TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION ($ 49.99 BluRay; Fox)

Do I love musicals? Yes, I do. And yet I approached the feature film Into The Woods with timidity. I’m crazy about the Stephen Sondheim stage production (though I’ve never seen a truly great production of it). Yet there’s something inherently…theatrical about it. It just doesn’t make sense to me as a feature film where all the fairy tale aspects would become literal rather than delightfully imaginary as in a Broadway house. Indeed, that seems to be the fatal flaw in the film. Someone else might have easily find a better, more distinctive way of tackling this story about what happens after “happily ever after,” but I doubt it would have truly worked. Yes, elaborate effects and big stars crammed into every role was the least imaginative way to go. But some musicals are not meant to be movies and I’m pretty sure this is one of them. Everything feels too literal here, whereas on stage it’s lighter than air and the poignancy of everyone from the childless couple to the Witch feels universal and deeply moving. Still, it’s coming out the day after James Corden made his late night debut on TV and he does quite nicely here. So it’s a good week for him, at least.

Of course, some stage musicals were destined to be films. Surely that’s the case with Rodgers & Hammerstein’s most successful property, The Sound Of Music. It’s the least complicated of their major musicals but it works a charm on film, whereas most of their other stage plays were entombed in godawful feature films that denuded them of the complex, adult concerns that made the stage plays so much more than just tuneful family entertainment. But family entertainment, indeed light operetta is exactly what’s on tap here, even though the film adroitly improves on the stage production and doesn’t blink from showing the way the Austrians worked with and even welcomed the Nazis at every level of society, from the aristocracy to the middle class to the workers. Captain Von Trapp is very much alone in his disdain for the Fuhrer. You don’t remember that really, of course, because what dominates the memory is a score brimming with classic tunes and Julie Andrews simply radiating goodness as Maria. Memorable villains are a piece of cake, by the way. Creating memorable, genuinely nice people is nigh on impossible but Andrews accomplishes exactly that. And she sings like an angel. If you own the 45th anniversary edition, there’s no need to upgrade. If you don’t, the BluRay is pretty stunningly lovely.

SONG OF THE SEA ($ 34.98 BluRay; Universal)
THE TALE OF THE PRINCESS KAGUYA ($ 34.98 BluRay; Universal)

The big shock when this year’s Oscar nominations were announced was the cold shoulder for The Lego Movie, one of the most successful and acclaimed films of the year. People foolishly blamed two of the movies they had never heard of that were nominated. I blame the inclusion of the very inferior movie The Boxtrolls. It was a technically challenging film from a company that has done wonderful work, but this wasn’t a creatively satisfying film according to virtually everyone. But most everyone else said, hey, what’s Song Of The Sea and The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya? Never heard of ’em! Well, Song is from the people behind The Secret Of Kells and uses an Irish folk tale to create a visually striking new film. Princess Kaguya is an even more gorgeous work from Studio Ghibli, the source for animation master Miyazaki. This fable proves the artisans that crafted his many masterpieces will be carrying on the tradition of excellent film work for years to come. Watch these and you won’t be complaining about why they were included; you’ll be complaining that they should have won over the middling effort Big Hero Six.

Robert Montgomery is a fascinating figure in Hollywood, both staunchly conservative and a bit of rebel thanks to going it online to purse his own projects after years in the studio system. He made a string of good to great movies, served as a pioneer in grooming politicians to make the most of their visual image via TV and the like (he served as an image consultant for President Eisenhower), fought corruption, hated commies and like any man’s man, genuinely put himself in harm’s way during World War Ii, ultimately winning the Bronze Star. He enjoyed big success as a producer in TV, where Robert Montgomery Presents was a big hit. His directorial efforts were less acclaimed but Montgomery hit a high water mark with the offbeat noir Ride A Pink Horse. (Even the title is offbeat!) It’s given loving treatment from Criterion but this is no lost classic. It’s a solid if second tier noir but with enough interest to make it worth your time. It’s the sort of release that let’s you know the folk at Criterion are people with their own quirky favorites and not just turning out the obvious big classics, like those AFI lists of the 100 Best Comedies that are depressingly middle brow.

John Cusack just switched some of his behind the scenes team and I couldn’t be happier. A terrific actor, Cusack has lost a step or two commercially and while he’s always working and always making money, he’s not building on the great early work of his career, at least not consistently. Here’s hoping he gets back on track and can make new films as fresh and distinctive as The Sure Thing. An early triumph for Rob Reiner, it’s a classic road movie with Cusack and Daphne Zuniga battling every step of the way as college students headed cross country. She’s meeting her boyfriend/husband-to-be while he’s hooking up with a sure thing. It’s a genuine delight. “Make love in a hammock!” is always good advice. Watch it and remind yourself how good he can be.

It’s another peak moment for fans of Orson Welles. A beautifully restored print of Chimes Of Midnight is on its way. A new book – Orson Welles’s Last Movie — tells the wild, hard to believe story of the making and unmaking of his still unseen final work The Other Side Of The Wind. And here is a gorgeous new BluRay print of his noir-ish The Lady From Shanghai. Not peak Welles but it has peak moments including a justly famous climax. This print looks just smashing.

Director Robert Altman was alone and all but forgotten during his years in the wilderness after the collapse of Popeye and before his comeback. He made modest, un-Altmanesque movies on a dime. But for my money they’re proud additions to his body of work and only add lustre to his legacy. Secret Honor is a compelling one-man show for Philip Baker Hall as NIxon. Streamers is a tight and nicely done adaptation of the stage play. And Vincent & Theo is an excellent example of that awful sub-genre: the film about a great artist. Often deadly dull, but this one is vibrant and alive, with excellent work by Tim Roth as Vincent Van Gogh and Paul Rhys as his much put-upon brother. It’s raw and passionate and exciting. No wonder his next film would be The Player.

The biker movie The Wild One was a sensation when it came out. Now it’s a curio, reduced to that one great bit of dialogue (“What are you rebelling against?” “Whatta ya got?”) and of course Brando. Marlon Brando makes it worth a look and this is a fine print. But the film is hopelessly dated despite his best effort.

The Breakfast Club is also dated, I must admit. A big favorite of mine on its release, the film was rightly dubbed The Little Chill while in production. Indeed, just like The Big Chill, it has remarkable casting (Jackie Burch did the honors) and scenes that imprinted themselves on a generation. Sure, it’s blame the parents attitude felt a little easy even then but it took its teenager heroes seriously, something you usually had to watch French films to see. But it holds up as a showcase for the great cast and as a time capsule for an era when young people at the center of a film felt like a novelty.

‘SNL’ Imagines How ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ Ends

The latest “Avengers: Age of Ultron” trailer dropped earlier this week, but forget buying tickets — “Saturday Night Live” already gave away the ending. OK, just kidding. It probably won’t end exactly the same.

The superheroes celebrated their defeat of robot villain Ultron in an “SNL” sketch that included a very excited Thor (Chris Hemsworth) doing the “running man.”

Pete Davidson’s Hulk apparently ate a man during battle, Taran Killam’s Iron Man is celebrating by going to Disney World, Thor mocked Beck Bennett’s Captain America, and Jay Pharoah’s Nick Fury got a good ol’ Gatorade shower.

To prove even more that literally nothing can tire out the Avengers, they’re throwing the after-party at Dave & Buster’s.

The Place Behind the Pines: “The Killing” Ends in Light

“Detectives Sarah Linden and Stephen Holder are deeply affected by the murders they investigate in this dark, acclaimed series,” or so says Netflix, in its description of the show it acquired from AMC. Season Four premiered August 1, 2014 on Netflix and Linden and Holder continue to be “deeply affected,” — they are after all murder police. In the series’ final moments, however, these characters are lighter, fluid: Linden (Mireille Enos) smiles, and her lips do not crack; Holder (Joel Kinnaman) is less grey, in fact, his sneakers are meticulously white. The years of banter, witty cop repartee and underlying sexual tension culminates with no Hollywood kiss. Rather, the two hold each other in a gaze that’s full of gravitas and the promise of partnership, doing the work of “showing up” — one of Season Four’s reigning metaphors. These are a pair of broken people who get each other. Boiled down, the show is about that dynamic, which is why the ending works.

2014-08-02-nTHEKILLINGNETFLIXlarge570.jpg

Some critics have called the ending unexpected, but the coupling feels right to me, as Linden, a perpetual runner, realizes home is with Holder — her “best friend,” and Holder’s eyes are no longer darting from here to there, tweaking out on whatever dogma will get him through the day: no, they are on this woman. This emotionally stunted, absentee mother has the capacity to love and care, to grieve and let go, all on her terms. As they’ve always been, Linden and Holder are both variations on the anti-hero. And that’s the thing about people who are “deeply affected;” they don’t always live in a functioning reality.

The pacing throughout this season was tight, with key episodes “The Good Soldier” (Episode 3) directed by Ed Bianchi and “Eden” (Series Finale) directed by Jonathan Demme creating a compelling arc of secrets that give themselves away, even in this land shielded by tall pines and unrelenting rain. The spectacle and melody of this crime drama always compelled me. To that end, the score, originally composed by Frans Bak for Forbrydelsen, the Danish series upon which The Killing is based, continues to do its job in this final season, patrolling the episodes and evoking tension. Bak’s familiar and well-structured soundtrack is not only haunting, but melodic, moody and steady, with percussive elements that build in turn with the emotional tension being played out on screen, more subtly than in previous seasons.

This season, our leads, more than ever are faced with seeing the monster within. Like cult crime drama favorites — Twin Peaks, True DetectiveThe Killing examines the place behind the pines, literally the seedy city built upon waterfront corruption, runaways and teen hookers. This is the brutality of the world Linden and Holder must make sense of, offset by the shades of Puget Sound. Moments when the camera pans back to the landscape feel naturalistic and meditative, a necessary complement to close-ups of blood spatter. These moments allow us to be enveloped by the fullness of the world as we spend time with its flawed but “deeply affected” characters. Throughout the season, Holder and Linden alternatively unravel with uncharacteristic rookie mistakes as they try to cover up the murder of Lieutenant Skinner, a.k.a serial killer, the Pied Piper. Linden misplaces shell casings discharged during Skinner’s execution and returns to the scene of the crime. Coming off of a drug binge, Holder looks for God and confesses to the murder in a N.A. meeting. These “slip-ups” force the characters to get caught and show up for the consequences behind their transgressions.

As the series wraps, we are left in a flash forward to years later, when the characters are no longer cloaked in firs and storm clouds, but rather illuminated by — of all things — the sun. They have grown younger having shed the skin of their badges, and series creator, Veena Sud leaves us thinking about a world where Linden and Holder can feel as opposed to being “deeply affected.”

About Me

Well Hello There,
My Names Joanna – and im not really a jezabell.
i seem to be the "adorable" one that people like to hug.
or ruffle my hair… but that may warrant a playful biff on the nose.
speaking of my hair its a bit confusing deciphering what colour its meant to be… its like an auburn strawberry blond at the root and then it kinda goes darker red then down into a purply red… hair stripper is indeed useless. at least the styles okay… the short emo pixie crop seems to work for me.
i like my eyes 🙂 theyre kinda deep browny black.
i dislike my baby face. which is why i plan to put more pieces of metal in it. i've only got my ears nose and lip done at the moment. i rather fancy snakebite then some form of surface piercing somewhere… no ink as of yet either.
my dress sense varys some days im pretty emo, other days im a gothy pixie, others i dont get dressed at all.

anyway enough of the superficial…
music is pretty big in my life… i sing a hell of a lot…
sometimes im good sometimes im downright awful to be truthful :/ im into eighties rock and anything before 1990 really 🙂
but i do like some modern shizz ¬¬
im quite arty too.
i do like use of large words… and speaking in the manner of an anne rice character. speaking slang with my voice just sounds plain wrong anyway.
im pretty intelligent..

anyway this is gonna time out soon so…
if your interested gimme a message

What I’m Looking For

well describing a perfect partner is difficult.. and slightly pointless as no-one is perfect so….
however i can say what i like in a man
first off – i say i like men but i do seem to have a thing for transvestites… i mean.. its not essential but i do like cross dressing – not sure why but i like it.
tatts and piercings are always good.
i also very much like a man with long hair 🙂

personalitywise i like true gentlemen with a secret naughty side.
someone that treats me right pretty much and i dont mean presents and material crap even though its nice sometimes.. im a slushy creature – i like cuddles.
