Gypsy and the repressed female sensuality

Comments (0) Art & Culture

For Wired “Gypsy could be a great TV series, but it is not.” In short, for the magazine Lisa Rubin’s show would not be up to expectations and not even her protagonist, I would add.
But let’s go with order. The new Netflix Netbook, available since June 30, tells the story of a frustrated psychiatrist, so bored about her life to begin to build very close ties with the people told to his patients.
If we want to psychoanalize her, Jean Holloway, played by Naomi Watts, is a woman close to middle age, with a fun and turbulent past that, with the excuse of wanting to solve problems at any
cost of his patients, desperately trying to find something that will make her life exciting.
Ten episodes in which Jean lives as many lives as her patients, those who can not keep away, breaking the number one rule of her profession.
On paper the series would have to be spectacular. Naomi Watts is a perfect performer, the first two directors are Sam Taylor-Johnson, Fifty Shades of Gray and especially Nowhere Boy. Yet the result is tedious.
I do not say ugly, I do not say that there are no interesting elements, but it’s boring.
Especially because it still pushes me to a sense of “ugliness”, the unrestrained search of perverse, dangerous and dirty, which, to be honest I was tired.
After interesting and perfect productions like Sense8 and Thirteen reasons why, Gypsy is a disappointment.
A forcibly slow pace, excellent photography, the actors believable, and yet, I wonder whether it is possible to stage an interesting TV series about a woman “adult” that does not need to bring to light its perversions to be successful.
Let’s be clear! I’m not a nostalgic Miss Marple and Jessica Fletcher, although I watched them with my grandmother, and I will always be loyal to these two nice old ladies. And Gyspy, no doubt the intention was different, it is to tell the life of a young and very sensual psychiatrist with a sewn on the role Wats. But there is nothing new.
Nothing that we have not seen in In Treatment, produced by Sky, if you want to look like a similar series, or at Santa Clarita Diet, comedy with Drew Barrymore, which was released on February in Netflix, if you are looking for a television series with an adult woman bored of her family life. Or nothing you have not already seen in You Me Her if you’re a fan of polyamory and love experiments.
The fact is that ugliness is fashionable.
But there are television series that tell stories of teenagers or men without sinking into this whirlwind. Adult women, on the other hand, can not get rid of these panther roles in a desire for repressed sensuality.
And then, if that is the case, we can only say “God save Gray’s Anatomy”
