The prensacon note that Netflix announced a few days ago his new project with J. Bayona could seem a parody if film and TV journalists were not already accustomed to the tone of communications that anyone would say coming from a parallel universe in which the Unique Series and Movies are those of Netflix. If not what they were going to tell Bayona returns to the story of Viven! Without quoting at no time the 1993 film, that morbid film as efficient that relate the accident of the 571 flight of the Uruguayan Air Force in 1972 and the subsequent hell who lived their survivors. What about cannibalism, you know. Not a mention of that in the announcement of the Snow Society. Nor is it about eating people. Reproduzco as: "trapped in one of the most inaccessible and hostile environments on the planet, they are forced to resort to extreme measures to stay alive". Does it look like a joke or not?
Of course, no reference to Yellowjackets, which is now in broadcast (in Spain in Movistar +). This series created by Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson also part of a plane crash and also includes cannibalism. The rugged, almost as they live! They are a team (North American) soccer (European) of adolescents (normal). Yes: normal. Do not teenagers like those of the new Gossip Girl, taken from the Olympus of Instagram, but Chavalas Random of mid-90s. One of the times that yellowjackets is that. The other is today. In the 90s are girls isolated on a mountain after a plane crash; In 2021 women marked by what they lived then. Normal girls, normal women. In situations nothing normal.
Karyn Kusama, director of the first episode, is responsible for a brilliant staging than the series, for now, maintains. A balance of forces, both narrative and visual, nothing easy to get: Yellowjackets must tell an extreme story that nevertheless is anchored in costumbrism, everyday and, why not say it, tedio. A scenario that really is two and that should work as a unit so that the series does not seem a collage of itself and other things: since, obviously, live! Even, obviously, lost. Passing, of course, by the Lord of the flies or 100. And that is only the novel part of the series.
Yellowjackets, which is neither nor does he want to be an avant-garde series, not toy with his referents in ironic winks to the viewer. Quite the opposite: his characters are built from scratch and their situations raised as if you had never seen them. Add to that a winning musical selection and have one of the best series of the season. Both that you do not need to tell that if you want stars here there are two good good: Christina Ricci and Juliette Lewis.
Although the authentic protagonists are those almost girls obliged to, ahem, "extreme measures to stay alive".Date Of Update: 07 December 2021, 18:46
