More Netflix adventures

Finished Wallander. While it is a mystery/crime drama, it was much lighter than Top of The Lake. Great characterization of the main, and although everything in the series sort of floats in and out around him, it works well. He's flawed, dedicated, honest, loving but distanced, and there are no happy endings. One quirk: although the cast is British, all the dialogue is English, but all of the written props are in Swedish, read out in English. Since they filmed in Sweden, I can understand signage being Swedish, or mixed Swedish/English, as locations might be dressed. But his email, handwritten postcards and letters? Makes me wonder if they didn't borrow straight from the Swedish TV production's prop room.

Watched The Producers. While I still prefer Gene Wilder, it was quite a fun movie, Possibly the most I've ever enjoyed watching Will Ferrell.
