Life on Mars

I have been inspired by a family member to start a blog on all things media. I am in the film business and went to school for it too. Not saying  I am an expert by any means but I am tired of all these so called experts just talking out of there proverbial asses.  I was watching Life on Mars tonight. I was afraid to watch it at first but I really was hooked in the 1st ten minutes.  I really wanted to know how they were going to be able to pull off the grittiness of 1973 NYC.  And I have to say they did a really good job. I even found that including the twin towers was amazing. The way it was shot with the film stock, lighting, and filters giving the past a more antique look was a brilliant move. Harvey Keitel being Harvey Keitel is fun to watch too. I am looking foward to seeing if this series continues to be good or will it be a novelty act that wears itself out.
