    The Wonder Years: An Oral History

    Fred Savage: One of the big things that The Wonder Years did so well is that the whole show was kind of looking back. So there was a very real sense of perspective and wisdom that came with a lot of the narration of looking back on these moments in your life. But at the same time, they still did it with an eye on how kids would genuinely respond in those scenarios. So a lot of the nostalgia of it or the wistfulness that the narrator had looking back was kind of lost on me a little bit. But what I responded to was just how real the situations felt, and how the kids reacted in a very real manner. It felt very honest to me. But the “Oh, you’ll appreciate this so much when you’re older” and “Oh, this was such a magical time that you’ll never quite get a chance to relive again,” I mean, kids don’t respond to that. I didn’t really get the significance of that, and the characters certainly didn’t. And no one really does, which is why that time is so special. Because you don’treally realize how magical it is until it’s gone, until you’re old enough to appreciate it. So a lot of the wisdom that the narrator looked back with didn’t resonate with me just because I was kind of living those years as opposed to looking back at them and marveling at them. So I feel like my reactions to the scenes as they were written and to the material as we were shooting it was very much in step with the normal kind of reactions that a regular 10, 11, 12, 13, 14-year-old boy, how he would react. I didn’t see the wisdom of the narration until much later, obviously.

    I’ve been reading Samuel Delany’s book “About Writing”. It’s fantastic — easily one of the best books on writing I’ve ever read. He comes across as effortlessly wise without ever feeling like he’s handing down instructions from on high.

    If you’re not familiar with Delany, he’s a gay, black, science fiction author who writes weird, looping novels full of bizarre sex. So you might expect his…

    I recently watched two excellent documentaries, FREE TO PLAY and LOS ANGELES PLAYS ITSELF. Both are unapologetically subjective, designed to serve specific agendas, yet they also deal with universal issues. Both have unusual production histories: FREE TO PLAY is the first film by Valve, the legendary video game studio, and is available free on YouTube and Steam; LOS ANGELES PLAYS ITSELF was put…

    Netflix Weekend 8/15: Lars von Trier and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

    by Kevin Ketchum

    This week I’ll be highlighting a filmmaker whom I have a much more complex relationship with than previous entries: Lars von Trier. Anyone who knows me know that I’m often hot and cold on his work, feeling that at his best, he’s transcendent, and at his worst, he’s insufferable. His last three films, the self-titled “Depression Trilogy”, often serves as a perfect example of this quality, producing a literal mixed bag of thematic exploration, and more or less capture everything that he believes in. Those three films are AntichristMelancholia, and Nymphomaniac.
