Every so often something hits the net bigtime that is both funny and tragic at the same time.
The Chelsea Davison take on Lena Dunham auditioning for Zero Dark Thirty fits into this category.
It is hilarious. I haven’t seen anything that quite so beautifully nails the narcissistic, NYC Centric, therapy speak sensibility of “Girls’ quite as accurately.
At the same time Zero Dark Thirty is about one of the most conflicted/brave/horrifying/unwavering events in US history.
The result of the mash-up of these 2 worlds puts both into relief in an uncomfortable way. Is that us? Really?
You’ve got to laugh, it’s too funny not to. But it bites very hard at the same time. COMMENT on what you think because after all it’s about NYC as much as anything else.
