My mind started to divide within a few hours as I watch an episode of Schnitzel and The Dirt within the same period. No shows could have be more different as Schnitzel focuses on the restricted life of those in a traditional Jewish family while The Dirt dabbles on the no rules of a rock band and I mean NO! Motley Crew lead the rock life that many wonder at the end how they could have survived while Schnitzel gives a bit more depth on how those of such rigid faith survive and thrive in their own world. Watching The Dirt and Schnitzel in one seating might divide your mind in 1/2 but at least there is that on common thread of community that brings it together in the end. For no matter where one goes if they stay within their community they will never really feel alone.
*** – The Dirt– Great film-making overall yet the consequences of their actions are painted with just a pencil as that depth is missing.
***- Schnitzel– For a show where action is less then fruitful it is compelling in the characters that are developed along the way.
