Original Content podcast: Martin Scorsese and Fran Lebowitz have a good time in ‘Pretend It’s A City’
The concept behind the new Netflix documentary sequence” Pretend It’s A City” is pretty straightforward: Author Fran Lebowitz talks, while Martin Scorsese( who’s both administrator and an on-camera presence) listens and laughs.
Lebowitz’s reflections across seven incidents are organized by loose themes, such as” Metropolitan Transit” and” Library Business ,” with the more recent footage interspersed with times from older interrogations. That’s pretty much it as far as structure becomes; while Lebowitz shares a number of cheering fables, there’s no attempt to explore the broader arc of her occupation or explain why we’re watching a show about her.
And yet, as we discuss on the latest episode of the Original Content podcast, we both experienced watching the part show.
Darrell describes Lebowitz as the accomplished party patron, full of mottoes and suggestive sentiments on everything from engineering to sports to the New York York City subway. And there’s something delicious about watching an fulfilled conductor like Scorsese just relaxing and having a good time.
On the other hand, it would be a little exasperating when we didn’t find Lebowitz’s as remarks quite as entertaining as Scorsese did, and watching one incident after another meant that she eventually wore out her welcome. So it’s probably best to enjoy the sequence an at a time, rather than binging the whole thing at once.
In addition to reviewing” Pretend It’s A City ,” we also discussed Nielsen’s positions of the more popular streaming services of 2020.
