This episode brings to light how brilliantly funny Roz (Peri Gilpin) is, as are the cast at the radio station, which I would have loved to see much more of. The harassment seminar is one of the funniest segments in the series. Frasier has always been the weakest link, except when he's being emotive, then he shines. Foolish Frasier is tiresome, but I still love the show to death. Julia and Frasier was just OK, but Roz takes it up a few notches, as always.
Morning Glory (2010)Rewatch it all the time

I love this script. I can't get enough of the film. I love everything about it. Even the music is not old after 8 years. Just watched it again. Dialogue is smart, witty. Every character is fleshed out and real. Don't get the naysayers at all. Kudos to all involved.
Collaborator (2011)An intricate, surprising gem

I was really taken with this film. It starts off about one theme, a professional failure, and then peels away unfolding like an emotional and psychological crap shoot. It builds in tension as it discards its facade. The dialog is on point, with the protagonist, a master of language, modifying his speech and tone to better fit those he converses with: his mother, wife, an elderly neighbor, a childhood friend. The dialog serves as its own character. I found myself stepping into the protagonist's shoes, reacting as I might to my past, taking a closer look whether I wanted to or not. Some nostalgic bells certainly rang for me, but that was the point. It is a film to watch slowly, to listen to without distraction. Perhaps it could have been tighter wound, crisper around the early edges, but then it's supposed to come at you from behind.
