Photos of Barbra Streisand doing biker BDSM from a shoot connected to the 1970 film The Owl and The Pussycat. Many more over at Dangerous Minds. The images were used in prop posters for a porn film titled Cycle Sluts starring Streisand’s character.
You’re the Worst’s charming combination of witty banter, anti-social rants, and idiosyncratic pop-culture diatribes is a key component to its success, but what makes this series truly unique is the way it deftly balances its acerbic edge with a stealthy optimistic soul. Gretchen and Jimmy are damaged not shattered. Bent not broken. Both characters, despite their plethora of interpersonal maladies, are battling against their own jaded nature in an attempt to make this relationship work. Love, in the absolute best and worst way possible, is both messy and absurd. YTW doesn’t inauthentically celebrate this notion as much as it realistically embraces it.
