Mickey and the Bear
An elegantly wrought drama about a father and daughter.
I tried to avoid it, but it took too much effort. Now I've given up, given in. I don't care about whatever's going on with Tiger Woods, the pro golfer. I had managed to ignore nearly all references to it, except for a rather amazing Taiwanese news-ish video re-enactment of crash scenarios (below, after jump). But then I accidentally happened upon this, and it made me laugh/cry. Not because it has much to do with that golfer, but because of the skill and wit with which it nails a particular musical style, using an actual "found" voicemail message and transforming it into a hilarious melodramatic narrative. I await the vintage Grand Ol' Opry version...
