Classic Film Femme

Brenda and Bunny

If you haven’t watched Six Feet Under, you are missing HBO’s most spectacular series. If you have watched Six Feet Under – you could totally watch it again and catch all sorts of nuances and references that you missed the first time around. This is exactly what I did and was uber-excited to notice that in Season 1, Episode 12 Brenda (the season’s most mysterious character) is watching a classic film that plays in the background. The film is Bunny Lake is Missing. At the time, I remembered that it was a great movie but I couldn’t figure out whether or not it was a random reference on the part the series so of course, I watched Bunny again. Sure enough – the reference to this classic mystery is absolutely not accidental. In fact, it provides deeper insight into Brenda’s character and her relationships. Dontcha just love when a director caters to intelligent viewers? As opposed to, say, Jersey Shore’s audience…
