I wanna discuss Hannah Gadsby’s Nanette, y’all. Do Netflix specials get classified as TV or movies?

It's over on the Blue already, if you didn't know (I didn't, and double-posted it over the weekend).

I think we call stand-up specials "movies"

Well that's discussion has closed, so I'll just say watch it and get everyone you know to watch it. It's more than comedy and it's incredibly good, deep, well-crafted, personal, true.

I watched it this weekend and now I want to buttonhole everyone I know and love to get them to watch it as well.

Soraya Roberts writes about Nanette in The Baffler -- I'm pondering this, not sure whether I agree.
Positioning herself as a post-comedy revolutionary crashing a male-dominated industry, Gadsby elides the long, complicated history of standup comedy.... Nanette does not defy, it inherits. It is a Trojan horse, a gesture towards challenge, which never actually delivers.

Whoops, meant to post that in the main FanFare thread.
