Louie CK, I love you.I mean your show and your work, but how can I love that and
not love you, in a way? Your work is amazing. In the past you blew my mind with
the Joan Rivers episode and her monologue about working in the entertainment
business. And then you had sex with her. You made me jump up and down with joy
and laughter with the Melissa Leo episode. You are so funny and cool and smart.
But now in season 4 you have taken it to new heights.
The Into The Woods episodes part I and II are more like a brilliant indie film
than a brilliant tv show. You work has no boundaries, you are setting a new bar
for tv and artists. You are doing what every artist dreams of, doing exactly
what you fell like, or so it seems. On top of being a mind blowing gorgeously
told and acted and directed story, full of humor and truth and empathy, you go
on to end it with a therapist lovingly telling a kid that the kid is not a bad
person, that he just made bad choices and that he made those choices for good
reasons, and that he just needs to make better choices and then you fade to
black and dedicate it to Philip Hoffman. How empathetic and classy and
beautiful. I am in awe. I am in awe.
That episode also happened to be filmed in Cardinal
Spellman, the catholic high school that I attended for 2 years before being
kicked out for being “punk.” So it was even more personal and perfect.
I am thrilled that you exist as a creative force in
this world. Thank you !!
