Okay folks, you've undoubtedly finished Stranger Things and now you don't know what to do with your life. The next show you should be clamoring to watch is The Get Down on Netflix. Created by Baz Luhrmann, this series tells the story of the birth of hip hop. It's very very Baz Luhrmann, which I think should be considered a genre onto it's own. He does not give two F!@#$ about structure or conventional storytelling, and I love it! It's all over the place and it feels frenetic with energy and passion. He really immerses you into the gritty world of the Bronx in the late 70's, when many kids were yearning for something less slick and superficial than the disco on the radio. Disco is beginning to be ushered out and hints of what we now know as hip hop start creeping in. There's even subtle hints of the punk scene bubbling forth. As in all of his projects, Baz stresses the importance of love and the celebration of art and music, and he does it all with such style. The amazing, 4 time Oscar winning Catherine Martin hits it out of the park again with her costumes in this series. She embraces the tail end of disco fashion, with an edge of punk and the emergence of hip hop culture flawlessly. It's so inspiring that there's a dress in the last episode, covered in gold sequins, in a drag club that made me yell YAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSS at the screen. Check out my inspiration pics from the show and that era, and my tips on how to make it modern. It's time to get down!
