    Best Director (lol)

    We so often see very violent movies/tv series where violence is merely used to create situations of misery, to convey a macabre thrill or pleasure, or it is banalized as a comical tool. Name a film and/or a tv series where there’s an intelligent and insightful use of violence and explain why.

    This is very interesting, given the multitude of definitions of “violent.” Carnage is one thing, of course, but there is also corruption of expectation, distortion of image, etc.

    But, to your point concerning violence in a physical fashion, one of my favorites is Twin Peaks. The program (at least for the first two seasons) portrayed a rather bloodless violence of both body and mind, given the network television parameters. Nevertheless, the violence depicted in Twin Peaks is so frightening for both two reasons: 1) Lynch and co. have a firm grasp of imagery and sound design, which can be so very arresting; and 2) the narrative, which sees violence as an evil corruption of the world, the corruptions of man onto woman as violence, and the possibility of this corruption living anywhere. Quite violent to be sure.

    Other favorites include the recent television show Hannibal (violence as aesthetic beauty), von Trier’s Nymphomaniac (violence as sex, sex as violence), and Verhoeven’s Starship Troopers (violence as satire).

    New question:
    How do you categorize cinematic “miniseries” delivered by the same director each episode, such as Big Little Lies and Maniac: television, episodic cinema, film, etc.?

    It’s either Tina Fey or Chris Rock. Kinda hard to choose.

    Changing the question since I don’t really watch SNL.

    Do you have a guilty pleasure TV show you watch?
