Rumble Fish

Time, how one spends one's time in life, self-actualization, death. Motorcycle Boy is seemingly trapped in being a legend, a victim of greatness and fame. He doesn't even have a name. He's Motorcycle Boy. Like Elvis or Marilyn or whoever. And doomed to a similar fate. He goes to California but never makes it to the ocean. "California got in the way". "California" being an allusion to Hollywood, stardom, fame, and everything that comes with it. Never makes it to the ocean but he gets his picture in a magazine, hair slicked back leaning against his motorcycle. Once again, Motorcycle Boy becomes a brand, becomes an object, a representation.

‘The King Of Staten Island’ On VOD Friday, June 12th

Available On Demand June 12 https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=233&v=a4wsbzhKnSE&feature=emb_logo This summer, Apatow directs Saturday Night Live's Pete Davidson in a bracing comedy about love, loss and laughter on Staten Island. Scott (Davidson) has been a case of arrested development ever since his firefighter father died when he was seven. He’s now reached his mid-20s having achieved little, chasing a dream of becoming a tattoo artist that seems far out of reach. As his ambitious younger sister (Maude Apatow, HBO’s Euphoria) heads off to college, Scott is still living with his exhausted ER nurse mother (Oscar® winner Marisa Tomei) and spends his days smoking weed, hanging with the guys—Oscar (Ricky Velez, Master of None), Igor (Moises Arias, Five Feet Apart) and Richie (Lou Wilson, TV’s The Guest

Greg Daniels’ “Upload” (Amazon) Premiers on May 1

Greg Daniels, the writer behind the The Office and co-creator of Parks and Recreation, after ten years, returns with two shows in May. One is another workplace comedy starring Steve Carell (Netflix’s Space Force), but the other is Daniels’ true follow-up to The Office and Parks and Rec: a sci-fi comedy mystery called Upload. In many ways it’s a tremendously different show from those iconic sitcoms—it’s single-camera, it’s R-rated, and it’s heavily serialized. But what it shares with Daniels’ previous shows is what makes it so compelling: despite being a story set in the afterlife tackling themes of capitalism and loss of privacy, Upload is at heart deeply human and deeply funny. The series takes place in the year 2033, and the afterlife is not just possible, it’s profitable.
