帕姆和汤米

“Separate your price from your worth,”Hugh Hefner宠爱了Pamela安德森Lily James)通过Hulu的新有限系列“Pam&Tommy”的近三分之一的方式,关于Pamela的蜜月性爱录像带与丈夫,MötleyCrüe鼓手的盗窃和分销Tommy Lee塞巴斯蒂安斯坦),她在旋风时为谁结婚了四天的浪漫。这是第一个真正的建议,任何人都赐给她关于爆炸性的职业生涯,她就是在80年代末期的Playboy Playmate,那么电视轰炸“Baywatch.“-和,忽略了源的责任,对主题领土展示展示罗伯特·塞格尔和ep.Craig Gillespie想要覆盖。

It’s a show about a very specific moment in history, where the ‘90s was set to change the world forever with the rise of celebrity gossip mags and the mass reach of the Internet. But it’s also more broadly about the public’s relationship with celebrity, and the entitlement the average person feels to accessing the innermost lives of the people they see on TV. (Doubly so when the person in question is a cultural sex symbol whose very existence makes men feel a sense of ownership of her body.) The show casts a wide net over all these concerns, bouncing between searing biopic drama and Coen brothers-esque dark comedy, and it doesn’t all work.

基于这一点2014Rolling Stone文章on the subject, “Pam & Tommy” curiously starts not with its titular characters, but in the mind of the schlub who stole the sex tape in the first place: embittered contractor Rand Gauthier (Seth Rogen.), a working stiff and “amateur theologian” who justifies stealing the tape as vengeance for being bilked out of thousands by the volatile Tommy. Soon enough, he’s folded in an old porn-industry buddy, “Uncle” Miltie Ingley (尼克提供者),他们一起开始复制和销售互联网上的磁带。当然,它雪球出于从那里的每个人的控制权,从子刻飞到了子刻,又有机会开发大部分。

很多节目勉强控制的混乱可以铺在脚下“我,托尼亚” and “克鲁拉”导演Gillespie,他指导的前三episodes of the eight-episode series (and who never met a tracking shot or needle drop he didn’t like). He turns on that same approach here, cameras constantly weaving and coasting through the immaculately-rendered ‘90s world the costume and production designers have set for themselves. It’s all very slick and diverting, but starts off the series with a breeziness that makes it harder for follow-up directorsLake Bell,gwyneth horder-payton,和Hannah Fidell.在剧本的辩护文化目标上击落锤子:Sleazy电视制作人,ogling粉丝和狗仔队,每个想要一块馅饼的Craven机会主义者。

作为一个白痴的喜剧喜剧,它的作品 - 罗伊总是一个可靠的每个人,非常清楚地从他的深度和完全跑步冲动时发现了一个可靠的人。但很难觉得每次我们都削减看哪条病毒的神话人兰德(包括最终,不得不为一个不情愿的Mob Enforcer而设计Andrew Dice Clay’s nasty loan shark), it takes significant time away from the real focus of the story: Pamela Anderson and the tape’s effect on her career, marriage, and life.

It’s these components that work best, due in large part to James’ stunning lead turn as Pamela. While she doesn’t fully disappear into the role—Anderson, whatever you may say about her as a performer, is impossible to truly replicate—James’ physical transformation (including pouty lips, a breathyMarilyn Monroewhisper, and conspicuously ample chest plate) gets pretty close. What’s more, James does a service to her subject by avoiding the tabloid caricature of Anderson as a dumb bimbo, instead playing her with a refreshing self-awareness and welcome ambition, as blinkered as it may be. (You don’t need hindsight to figure out that Pamela Anderson shouldn’t have hinged her movie-star hopes on something like “Barb Wire。“)

While the show is clearly Pam’s story, we can’t forget about Tommy, played with childish volatility by Stan. On the one hand, Stan’s Tommy is cartoonish, a hair-trigger buffoon as motivated by his dick as anything else. (One of the series’ most bizarre scenes literalizes this, as he has a heart-to-helmet conversation with his own enormous, prehensile member, voiced byJason Mantzoukas..) On the other, his love for Pamela is right there on the surface, peeking out through layers of tattoos and the bro-code mores of the dipshit heavy-metal subculture he rides in. It’s not nearly on the same level as James’, but Stan is engaging from moment to moment, and I hope he gets more chances to dip out from his Marvel contract to stretch his acting legs like this.

尽管如此,对于所有强大的表现,时尚方向和大声的音调,“Pam&Tommy”最终在自己的道德Quouldsand中最终陷入困境。毕竟,对于一个展示如此致力于详细说明真正的情感和心理伤害性爱录像对帕梅拉,并没有用电影明星恢复它,潜伏的夸张倒在伤口中的盐更多?威胁到毕竟,这不是威胁要完全撤消工作的东西,我们不会问这么多其他电视谴责真实的名人丑闻。但帕梅拉在这里是如此明确的无辜,所以如此深受折磨和羞辱的事件,她经历过,对待它如此琐碎的感觉有点粗糙(特别是因为展示缺乏真正的安德森的认可以来)。

这并不难看出,就像他以前对流行文化扔掉的女性的考试一样,吉列斯希望与帕梅拉一起做同样的事情。到了节目的信用,当它实际上坐下足够长的时间来估计性别磁带的上诉的先天性令人吸引力,它影响了它的主题的方式,它很可能。但是空气中有太多球,它的舌头被脸颊造成了太牢固的脸颊,以避免破坏自己。最后,由帕梅拉自己决定这种康复是否真的是必要的,甚至有帮助。在此之前,我们作为观众必须估计“PAM&TOMMY”只是违反隐私的另一个违规,如威光电视的光泽镜头过滤。
