Hustlers has been on my ‘watchlist’ for a long time. I didn’t get to see it in a theater and it was never on a streamer that I subscribe to. But now it’s on Hulu, which means I finally got to watch it. It was worth the wait.
Inventing Anna, a Netflix mini-series about the rise and fall of a fake socialite from creator Shonda Rhimes, is fascinating and compelling television. I took it as a parable about the rot at the heart of the American psyche. It’s a classic tale of good and evil, truth and lies, reality and illusion.
