DVD review in the Los Angeles Times

27Oct2007

Large article in Sunday's Los Angeles Times: "'My So-Called Life' stands the test of teenagers -- and time".

In its parts it may have resembled things that came before, but in its sum it was unique, as one would say every life is unique, and yet part of some universal chord. A nonjudgmental mix of journalistic and spiritual attitudes, "My So-Called Life" at once romanticized and accurately portrayed what it is to be young and changing, to be elevated and wrecked by the same powerful emotions, and it did it without descending into melodrama or selling soap. It was, in fact, a quiet show, devoted to long takes, long looks, long silences. But constantly . . . vibrating.
NOTE The DVD set will be released offically on October 30, but we heard that amazon.com has already started shipping pre-orders. Watch for many more media reviews in the coming days. 29 replies
