Bitchin Film Reviews:
To the world of television, it seems. Am I the only confused as to why so many great film actors are heading to the small screen? Coming this fall, Maria Bello will be taking her turn as a tough-as-nails detective named Jane Timoney in a series called Prime Suspect. You’ve probably seen the promos of her all bruised, beaten, bitten, and eating breakfast next a murder victim. Granted, this is an American take on a highly-praised police procedural from the UK which starred Helen Mirren. Having never seen the original, I can’t really take a stance on the series, but a police procedural? Really? Bello has turned fine performances in great films like A History of Violence and Towelhead. I would much rather see her in twee, indie films if nothing less, rather than another generic crime drama.
