Did You Know?


In the first scene, Kurt is upset with a comedian "telling him how to vote" and "saying things about Trump". The comedian's name is Casey Louistein, a play on creator's name Louis C.K. Louis C.K. did say some things about Trump and the election process in the emails he's been sending to his subscribes, and in the show, C.K.'s character, Horace, tried to defend the comedian saying maybe he just wanted people to think, but he was shot down pretty quickly by Kurt telling him that the comedian should "tell his dumb jokes and shut the fuck up so that grown folks can talk."

Rhonda: I have been around long enough to know that men can only make two contributions to my life. They can lift things and they can fuck. I don't want to know you. I don't want to date you. I don't want to move in with you. I don't want to meet your mama. Fuck me... move my furniture.
Horace: Where do you want it?

Horace And Pete

CK's love letter to Eugene O'Neill follows a non-pretentious arthouse system. And no, I am not concluding it on the basis of its marketing technique, but the broadminded shallowness of the ideology it refers to. If the theme in Louis CK, the creator's, play dissects the inside of prejudiced abhorrent beings, he is also not obsessed on pursuing you to change or whip you with its content, on the other hand. His project isn't ambiguous or vague, if anything it is the most complete story told in its entirety to serve nothing but the purpose that it evidently wants you to eradicate from your thinking.

The livelihood that it depicts is the punishment to the unfair activities that these fellows bring upon themselves and onto others. CK doesn't compromise the quality of the show by steering it towards preaching-to-the-choir tone. Just like his stand up material, a lot of the thinking is left up to you. This personal project of his shows enormous amount of enthusiasm on not caring on the views or opinions that its by product will have. And those politically incorrect views are the distraction unlike the material we have been bombarded with in the last few years.

That crispiness, the humorisc debates, the goofiness is a celebratory distraction to what's going on or goes on in a bar. The real drama lies in the silence pitched on the screen that observes the physicality of these character in contrast to the surrounding they are in. The stillness that CK has captured is impeccable, so rarely do you get to see these calm and sweet moments choreographed and danced. Horace And Pete is a drama that is ahead of its time, just served us as a teaser to what should and could be our future, both in the real world and this two dimensional screen that we have been naming as "the idiot box".

Episode #1.7

I would ask why, just like every other. To go to such lengths and that amount of insanity, for the shock. Killing shock. But if CK can do it with that intensity and move you with his procedure, the commitment seems admirable. And what's fun to watch is this time he is not alone on stage doing stand up, everyone is on the joke, and it is funny.
