Glitzy and glamorous. Steven Soderbergh’s lavish biopic about the decadent lifestyle of Liberace is a great character study. Douglas manages a finely balanced performance in his seductive, flamboyant portrayal of the gay icon and musician. This HBO film is anchored by Matt Damon’s nuanced performance as his companion and lover Scott Thorson, an impressionable, naïve young man who becomes enamoured with Liberace’s larger than life persona.
This cartoon is a quirky, exhilarating, razor sharp adventure comedy in the veign of Twin Peaks (for kids and adults alike) meets The Simpsons with its own cryptic, supernatural mythology, unfolding in every episode. Creator Adam Hirsch has constructed a wonderful world full of interesting, offbeat characters and mysterious situations as a pair of curious 12-year-old twins discover the strange town they live in with their crazy (great uncle) Grunkle Stan.
