Brad Winderbaum's Satacracy 88.10.1

The first part of the tenth episode Brad Winderbaum's Emmy Award winning Satacracy 88 is up at Also, it is right here.

The teaser flash-forward prologue is great here, especially with the swooping camera that then modifies to give us stills of Angela and Susan. Michael Bay would have just swooped in and out, forcing you to ask your date what the hell was going on.

Something about the film quality, the three tough chicks, the car, the lighting, the setting and the quick beat-down of a male aggressor are all suggesting Death Proof to me, in a good way -- part of the way an episode of less than two minutes must work is by invoking larger patterns of violence for authority and scope.

Cassie Pappas, who plays Susan, has an undeniable charisma. Something about the way she holds herself as she walks back to the car.
