I LOVE DICK
May 12, 2017  | By David Bianculli

Amazon Prime Video, 3:00 a.m. ET

 

SERIES PREMIERE: Jill Soloway of Transparent brings another intentionally and creatively provocative TV series to Amazon. This one takes the 1997 novel by Chris Kraus, told through a series of letters written by an infatuated yet infuriated artistic woman to a self-centered yet charismatic intellectual figure named Dick, and turns it into a playful comedy-drama, with Kathryn Hahn as the central protagonist, and Kevin Bacon as the embodiment of the self-satisfied artist, running an arts program in Marfa, TX – part cowboy, part chauvinist, part artistic poser, and all entertaining. For my full review, listen today to NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross, or, this afternoon or later, visit the Fresh Air website. For full TVWW reviews, see Ed Bark's Uncle Barky's Bytes and David Hinckley's All Along the Watchtower.
