I was in the mood to watch DVDs and knit today after a rough week at work. Had to go to the library anyway, so I checked through the returned (unshelved) DVDs and came across The Singing Detective, which I’ve been hearing about for years but have never seen.
Oh. My. God.
Watched the whole thing in effectively one sitting (long nap after ep 1 – as I said, rough week at work), and Oh. My. God. What an amazing, bizarre, involving, fascinating, bewildering piece of work it is. I still have zero idea what actually happened “in real life” so to speak, there were so many levels of story going on and intertwining.
Anyone who’s heard of it and thought “hm, sounds interesting” – yeah, it really is, well worth watching.
And I hear the American remake, with Robert Downey Jr., really sucked – how on earth did they boil all of that down to 109 minutes?
